POETS‘ CORNER Mitte – Poetry in the Districts: Focus Norway

2022-06-15, 6:00 PM

The warm-up before the start of the 23rd poesiefestival berlin! Poets’ Corner takes over the city with poetry! Berlin-based poets and musicians will read and perform across the city’s districts in libraries, gardens, and cultural centers, thanks to support of Berlin’s city districts and cultural institutions. There’s room for poetry everywhere!

For over 15 years, Poets’ Corner has been bringing poetry to the boroughs, from Spandau to Marzahn. The declared goal is to bring the art form of poetry into public space and to promote exchange between Berlin authors, as well as to provide a platform for the variety of forms, styles, languages written here locally.

The readings will take place in German as well as in the respective original languages, with German-language translations.
