Workshop Collectively Poetic

How do you come up with an idea together and how do you write a poem as a group?

During this workshop, given by poet and theatre maker Ferdy Karto, we explore the creative boundaries of the collective.  

How do you come up with an idea together and how do you write a poem as a group? Sign up and find out how, by connecting with other participants, you can create a beautiful original work.

 

Ferdy Karto is a poet, writer & theatre maker. His collection 'Het firmament tussendoor' was nominated for the C. Buddingh' Prize in 2022. He writes theatre for adults and children. He is also a writer of short stories. Karto has directed several short films, including 'Na de sin' (2021). Published poetry in Liter, Tirade, De Groene Amsterdammer, among others. In 2023/2024, he is guest curator of...
