Fostering collaboration among translators representing various UNESCO Cities of Literature and presencing the shaping power of translation in these city spaces, this year the workshop program will be structured around the theme Translating the City and revolve around a central conceptual question:
How might translation function as an inter-space, i.e. a creative regenerative commons, which fosters genuine dialogue across diverse languages and cultures that coexist in our cities?
Toward this aim, the Littransformer workshop sets out to create an engaging cross-cultural environment where participants are asked to interact creatively by translating poetry authored by the poets from represented cities of literature. Apart from the lectures and group sessions, the participants will be given time and space to work in pairs and across three languages: their two native languages, and English, the bridge language between them.

Report video for the UNESCO Lviv Ministry of Literature project from the Littransformer project. The video was created as a dynamic set of images from the main events of the masterclasses to show the volume of activities in which the guests and participants of the festival were involved. In this video, we also made a series of conversations with the participants, who share their impressions of the process and talk about their languages and cultures as components of the master class. The video is a supplement to all visual communication of the project, together with the magazine and photo reports and are by-products of Littransformer branding. The video was shot on a Sony 6300 camera and a Takumar 50 lens.
