Poetry will certainly be the pounding heart of neighborhood life in 20 Verse Towns throughout the island of Ireland this September.
Towns as well as communities across Ireland are to be celebrated in a new Verse Ireland campaign. Poetry Town will see greater than a hundred cost-free, poetry-related tasks occur in 20 communities throughout the island of Ireland between 18th and 10th September 2021.
The people and also areas of each Poetry Town will certainly celebrate verse in their daily lives and environments, develop communal experiences, and also commemorate the satisfaction, strength and variety of each town. See this space for much more, including the announcement of each community’s Poet Laureate in mid-August, and upcoming information on events.
Poetry Town is a campaign of Poetry Ireland in partnership with Local Authority Arts Workplaces as well as is enabled with financing from the Arts Council of Ireland’s Open Phone call funding, as well as is also supported by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
