Vilnius Literary Space

“Vilnius Literary Space” project is a visual introduction to contemporary Lithuanian poetry. Each of the participants chooses his own particular text and a specific Vilnius place, where he wants to read it. Poets read in their own language and their readings are subtitled in English.

The project wants to represent city of Vilnius as a modern (and sometimes controversial) creative space, full of vibe and interesting places. The aim is to show the link between Vilnius poets and their city. “Vilnius Literary Space” is a synthesis between contemporary Lithuanian literature and cityscape.


Druskininkai Poetic Fall

It is a laboratory festival, aimed primarily at poets, critics, literary scholars and publishers, that also kindly invites the public. The main goal of the festival is to bring together the community of poets, give them conditions for sharing their works, reflect on and evaluate their texts, and identify the changes in the current trends.
