“Dagny – romans kultur” (Dagny – A Romance of Cultures) is an international literary festival concluding a two-year long program of scholarships and literary events. The writer in residence program dates back to 1998. Through the years, Villa Decius had begun hosting writers from other Central-Eastern European nations, especially from Ukraine and Belarus. In 2010, the program was expanded to include Norwegian writers. The festival also played host to the premiere of the anthology “Podróż na północ” (A Voyage North).
