A new literature festival will take place in Montricher over the weekend of 4 - 6 May 2018.

Organized by the Jan Michalski Foundation, the festival will feature discussions with writers from all corners of the world, who will take part in a programme of readings, debates, and interviews, with interludes for music by the singer, Noa, and a film screening of She, a Chinese.

The first edition of this festival will focus on literature “beyond borders”, and will explore the issues of displacement, both by choice and necessity, and of geographical uprooting, whether emotional, linguistic or intellectual. It will look at questions such as:

  • How are identities, both personal and political, transformed and shaped by
    exile?
  • Is literature stateless and transnational?
  • Is language our haven or our memory?
  • What kind of international encounters are negotiated through fiction? How does migrant literature reinvent and question societies?

A new “mobile” paint-your-own-pottery studio has been launched in the canton of Vaud.

Called Doodlepotz, the studio was launched just a few months ago, by local mompreneur, Lucy Gottelier. A former management consultant with worldwide experience on fast-changing projects, Lucy decided to launch her own business in Switzerland after taking a career break to start her own family and and working as a part-time paint-you-own-pottery teacher whilst living in the US!

Lucy told us, “When our family moved to Coppet in 2016, I had the good fortune to meet life coach, Milena McRae, who inspired me to think hard about what I really wanted in life. I soon discovered that painting pottery was a passion that I was keen to continue so, in May 2017, Doodlepotz was born – a name inspired by the family’s new puppy, an Australian Labradoodle!

Lucy trained with UK-renowned Paint-your-own-pottery expert, Rachel Byass, and she is supported behind the scenes by the artist and teacher Joanna Foray-Mason, previous owner of "Glazy Days" in Coppet. She is also a member of multiple professional Paint-your-own-pottery Facebook groups, and she actively looks to share best practices across these networks.
