Virginia Woolf's "A Room of one's Own" essay explores women as writers, creatives, as well as fiction characters and their genre roles. Published in 1929, it is considered an inspiring feminist manifest, that talks about femenine writing in dominant patriarchal tradition. "To write novels, a woman needs money and a room of her own". This fundamental work is translated into multiple languages but it does not exist in Basque.

From consonni, we propose a special edition in Basque. Translated by Maria Colera Intxausti, designed by Maite Zabaleta, prologued by Adelina Moya and Remedios Zafra and with a Kajsa Dahlberg artistic intervention. This iniciative arises from the recent creation of a street office of consonni art producer(Bilbao). It is a demand for recognition of our own space (private and public) that women need to work, reflect and create.

WHY DO WE NEED YOU?
Because though the importance of your book and its currentness, only through the support of people like you we would be able to translate it into basque and spread its content.
We need you to push this project ahead!
Your support will make possible:

  • Translation and correction of the texts (virginia woolf's original and the prologues)
  • Design and layout
  • Spreading the book inside and outside Euskadi consonni will take charge of the cost of new texts as well as the printing of 1000 copies

OTHER WAYS OF COLLABORATION
Spreading this iniative through your friends, knowns and entities.

WHEN WILL IT BE READY?
If there is no handycap, at the beginnings of 2013 the book will be in your/our hands

MILA ESKER!
NOTE: For those who want to take part in funding this book and need some help, you can send an email to info@consonni.org :)

#01 / Comenzamos!!

"(…) Si una mujer escribía, tenía que hacerlo en la sala común. Y como se hubo de lamentar Miss Nightingale con tanta vehemencia- "las mujeres nunca tienen una media hora…que sea realmente de ellas"- siempre la interrumpían." Habitación propia, Virginia Woolf, 1929

Estamos felices de comenzar este proyecto de crowdfunding con vosotr*s!

Programamos una lectura coral de "A room of one's own" de Virginia Woolf cono motivo del 16 aniversario de consonni para el 14 de diciembre. La lectura es en varios idiomas; inglés, castellano, catalán, francés, alemán, sueco… y así nos percatamos de que no existe en euskera. Esto nos hizo pensar en la necesidad de traducir este texto, iluminarlo de alguna forma, volver a difundirlo, reavivar los debates que en él se plantean. Desde consonni las tesis planteadas en las páginas de… read more
