Transpoesie Festival 2022

Deadline: 4 Jul 2022

Launched in 2011, TRANSPOESIE is an annual poetry festival organised by EUNIC Brussels – the local network of European Union National Institutes for Culture, and its partners. It was inspired by the successful and long-standing Poems on the Underground in London and Wiersze w Metrze in Warsaw, as well as similar projects run in various capital cities all over the world such as Paris, New York and Montreal.

For the 12th edition of the festival, the Transpoesie Team has decided to focus on the European Year of Youth. Through the lenses of poetry, they aim to give a voice to young artists to express their idea of the future – greener, more inclusive, more peaceful. 

What they offer:

1. Publishing poems in their original languages, as well as translations, on their website.

2. Displaying poems in their original languages and two translations (French and Dutch) in public spaces in Brussels.

3. Highlighting the poems in the Transpoesie brochure, other printed and online materials and platforms.

4. The possibility of inviting the poet to the poetry events organised in Brussels. The poets to perform in both online and on site events will be selected by the Transpoesie team.

5. Networking and new collaboration opportunities for poets/translators/cultural operators. 

Please confirm your interest by sending an email with your contact info to Deadline for sending the name of the poet, bio, photo, video and the poem together with the translations: 4 July 2022. Deadline for sending the poems to be read at one of the events and their translation: 20 August 2022.
