Sunday 12 June: The State of Poetry

Dutch and Flemish poetry and award ceremony of C.Buddingh'-prize

On Sunday, enjoy the Dutch and Flemish language arts in all their diversity, as the writers of amazing collections, the most striking newcomers and sensational performers present their poems and pieces. There will also be plenty of scope to explore the latest intriguing initiatives and collectives, surprising trends and off-the-page poetry, which will be turned inside out and interpreted in columns, keynote speeches and debates. And of course the 35th C. Buddingh’ Prize for the best Dutch-language poetry debut will be awarded. We will also present an ode to K. Schippers, the unforgettable poet whom we sadly lost last year.

With festivalpoets Eva Gerlach, Sasja Janssen, Mustafa Kör, Marjolijn van Heemstra, Nils Chr. Moe-Repstad, Takako Arai, Gonca Özmen, Cornelia Hülmbauer, the nominees of C.Buddingh’-prize, and Gershwin Bonevacia and Jens Meijen.
