The Uyghur PEN Centre was founded in 2006 in Stockholm, Sweden, by the Uyghur musician Kurash Kusan (Kurash Sultan), and other Uyghur writers in exile. Unfortunately, only eleven days after announcing the establishment of the Centre, Kurash Kusan passed away. We will always remember him with pride.
