Poets in Conversation

Poets in Conversation IG artwork

This is a live recording of an event that took place at Open Book Festival in September 2023.

This platform offers the poets an opportunity to consider their experiences following the Hear My Voice Poetry Retreat, and respond to the query, “What does collaboration entail in the face of contemporary issues?”

Curated by Hear My Voice with support from the delegation of Flanders: Embassy of Belgium and Göteborgs Litteraturhus.

This event was made possible by the support of the Department of Sports, Arts and Culture, the City of Cape Town and the Heinrich Böll Foundation.
