Poetry Connections 2015

Poetry Connections is a series of projects which bring together poets from Europe and India to explore each other’s work through translation and create a multilingual poetry performance. The next Poetry Connections workshop will take place in January 2015 in Hyderabad, and the resulting performance will be showcased at the Hyderabad Literary Festival, at the British Library in Bangalore and the India International Centre in Delhi.

Participating are Miguel Manso (Portugal) Heike Fiedler (Switzerland), Tsead Bruinja (Netherlands), Siân Melangell Dafydd and David Greenslade (Wales, UK), and on home ground Sampurna Chattarji and Mamta Sagar (India). The workshop will be led by Alexandra Büchler (LAF).

The project is supported by the Camoes Institute, Douwe Kalma Foundation, Dutch Literature Foundation, Pro Helvetia – Swiss Arts Council and Wales Arts International.
