Festival Suns Europa yn Udine, Italië sil begjin desimber op ‘e nij muzyk, film en literatuer yn minderheidstalen yn it sintsje sette. Muzikanten, filmmakkers en skriuwers dy’t hjiroan meidwaan wolle kinne harren oant 5 oktober ynskriuwe fia de website. Ferline jier die foar Fryslân it muzikale duo ‘Marit & Nigel’ mei oan Suns; net sûnder súkses, want it jonge duo waard doe twadde op it sjongfestival.
Foar dit jier krige it EBLT fan ús Europeeske netwurk NPLD de folgjende oprop, dy’t wy hjir publisearje:
