Details

FlipSide was founded in 2013. In its inaugural year it welcomed writers from the UK and Brazil including Ian McEwan, Will Self, Milton Hatoum and Bernardo Carvalho. FlipSide has a strong musical element and has played host to Bebel Gilberto, Adriana Calcanhotto, Paula Morelembaum, Jose Miguel Wisnick and world DJ Gilles Peterson. In January 2015 FlipSide became a Registered Charity (1160164). FlipSide is the sister festival of FLIP (Festa Literaria Internacional de Paraty), South America's first and largest international literary festival.

Our aims are to produce the vibrant FlipSide Festival and a growing calendar of schools and community literature, music and arts events, opening a window onto a world of new cultural experiences.
