Date & Time

6 – 8 February, 2024



A truly inspiring gathering of partners in Budapest, kindly hosted by Budapest Brand. A productive and enriching two days – partners spoke about their 2024 events in Leeuwarden, Eleusis, Oulu and Berlin and looked forward to events in Act III this year – Budapest and Lugo continuing their journey with unexpected extra events, Lisbon and Dublin, and all culminating in the YES Festival in Derry-Donegal. 

The specially commissioned ULYSSES European Odyssey book and the project’s arts & society publication were discussed in detail, with a chance to see the first design approach for the book by Marseille based visual artists and project partners, Gethan&Myles. 

The Ambassador of Ireland to Hungary, Mr. Ragnar Almqvist, kindly hosted a dinner at his residency, which was also attended by the representatives of James Joyce Society and Leopold Bloom Foundation from Szombathely, from where Bloom’s father came.

A highlight of the trip was the unveiling of the 1922 edition of Ulysses, kindly brought by Benedict Schlepper-Connolly from the Museum of Literature Ireland (MoLI). A real honour for us all
