Doverodde Book Arts Festival IV & Symposium – 2012 took place May 18-20th, 2012 and like the previous years it was host to many different events: the international themed book arts exhibition 'Udkant/On the margins', workshops, music and one collected stand area where the artists could show, sell and discuss their work with visitors. Three days with a full programme.

One of several new initiatives this years was the Symposium held on Saturday evening May 19th. This new addition to the Festival had attracted participants from as far away as Singapore, New York and Canada. The Symposium evening meant that all participants had a chance to come to all the talks and have an enjoyable evening together while sharing knowledge and experiences.
It has become a tradition that the Festivals begin with breakfast for all participants.

The event was introduced by short speeches by the Director of the Limfjordscentret Karin Nikolaus, the head of the board Niels Peter Riis all mixed with classical music by the German trio from Kassel: Music in a Garden.
