The opening event of Transpoesie 2019 will bring into action once again contemporary poets and their poetry.
For the third year in a row MuntPunt and Transpoesie join forces to present to the poetry enthusiast of Brussels a great selection of literary talents from across Europe.
From September European contemporary poetry will flood again Brussels. 23 countries and regions and 22 different languages will be represented with a poem this year and 19 poets will attend the festival!
Starting with the official launch on 26 September, four dedicated poetry events will feature on this year’s programme.
The famous booklovers’ spot in Saint Gilles, Maison du Livre is hosting the festival for the first time.
The final event of the festival will be held for the first time at LOFT 58 in collaboration with MondoCultures who aims to bring the world to Brussels.
The Hungarian Cultural Institute, partner from the beginning of the festival, opens its doors to the third poetry-reading event of 2019. The scene will vibrate from the different languages and fresh poetry from all corners of Europe.
EUNIC Brussels is looking for a designer to create the visual elements of the Transpoesie poetry festival in 2019.
