Festival of Hope 2

Unable, finally, to take place in the flesh, the European Poetry Festival leans into what can be created without proximity, generating new insights into poetic practice in continental Europe by creating ambitious film-poetry collaborations especially for a digital festival, starring poets such as Aase Berg, Robert Prosser and Kinga Toth.

European Poetry Festival

The European Poetry Festival celebrates, in the UK and beyond, the grand resurgence in avant-garde and literary poetry that has marked the 21st century in Europe. It aims to not only innovative what a live poetry experience might be, but to inculcate community and engagement between poets across the continent, as well as between new audiences and complex poetries. The EPF is trying to create a new understanding of what European literature might be in a new Europe.
