Story

In July 2006, a place was created in our theatre of a new world for the World City of Literature to excite interest in imagining possibilities for exploring ideas to connect our community and our our body of literature to our creative interests

The World City of Literature is an open source library, a creative commons for exploring the art of language, and an open space for creating connections and creative community enterprise around opportunities to increase literacy, excite interest in reading, and increase our understanding and appreciation for the contribution of literature to our cultural development and our common human interests.

In December 2011, a place was also created for the Centre for Literature for exploring how literature has contributed to our creative and cultural evolution and how our understanding of the contributions of literature could contribute to creating a new world and to creating possibilities for the future of our world.
