The National Poetry Library Open Day
Come along to the open day to see themed displays which explore these questions. Find out about how poets have explored poetry as a visual language; the poetic roots of grime music; the endangered languages of indigenous cultures and the Austrian sound poet Ernst Jandl, who performed at the first Poetry International festival in 1971.
The open day will premier a new collaborative work between Iris Colomb and Eta Dahlia, Semechki, which was made using a process of translating sound into physical gestures on the page.
Come along to the library at 8pm to hear commissioned poets Victoria Adukwei Bulley and Hannah Silva respond to the displays and themes of A Universal Language.
