Poetry of solidarity and accord, part 2
Festival of Hope 2
Since March 2020 Write4Word has been hosting online participatory poetry events and since August 2020 such events in the hybrid format. They have shared a stage virtually and physically with many international voices and the voices of disabled writers. They made recordings of those live performances and some of them have been edited into short films between 30 and 40 minutes long. This film features Swedish voices presented by Litteraturcentrum KVU and Kultivera.
write4word as well as many of our literary friends, including our sister community the Cellar Bards, are committed to creating platforms for the poetic voices of local communities, international communities and marginalised communities.
Litteraturcentrum KVU is an international literary initiative in which write4word is a partner along with, among others, the Red Door Gallery in Denmark; La libélula vaga, online Spanish language magazine and Kultivera, a Swedish arts organisation. Litteraturcentrum KVU have produced four exclusive films for a series to contribute to the 2021 Versopolis Festival of Hope.
