Rambling through Dublin 1 this Culture Night?

In the tradition of soapbox orators who’ve raised their voices on busy street corners throughout history, our line-up of Poetry Soapbox performers will be popping up in various locations around Dublin 1 on Culture Night as part of our Poetry Town festivities.

On your way through town that evening? Keep an eye out for our poets, who’ll be delivering quick-flash performances for random passers-by that convey the spirit of Dublin 1 and the realities of the area. There will be poems of hope, loss, love, despair, and witness. 

Featured poets include: Rachael Hegarty, Maire Saaritsa, Samuel Yakura, Dagogo Hart, Ciara Ní É, Fiadh Trevaskis-Hoskin, Emmet O’Brien, Temper-Mental MissElayneous, Karl Parkinson, and Hazel Hogan

Please note strict COVID-19 protocols are in place for these performances to ensure the safety of our artists and audiences.
