15 young writers have been getting together every week in the six Poetry Circle towns, and, since 2016, Leeuwarden has been included in this group of cities. They learn from each other and experience “Spoken Word” performers. You can see them perform regularly, or perhaps you would like to take part yourself?
In 2017 and 2018, new “circles” with young talent between 15-25 years will start up. Poets, writers, rappers and storytellers. From Leeuwarden and the rest of Friesland. They will gather in Neushoorn every Thursday evening for a period of 20 weeks to write new texts and prepare performances.
In 2018, this will lead not only to great performances in Neushoorn Café: the annual national event will also take place in Leeuwarden this year too! Above-all, Poetry Circle 058 is also involved with the fourth and final projection at the Oldehoofsterkerkhof.
Performances throughout 2018 and national event in June 2018
Poetry Circle/Stichting Nowhere Amsterdam, Jimmy’s Leeuwarden, Poetry Slam Leeuwarden, Leeuwarder Collectief and Neushoorn
