SOLD OUT Poetry Walk & Lunch - 'Poetry Lives Here'

Delicious lunch, unexpected locations, poets and spoken word artists

The walking route then takes you past and through houses, gardens, studios and other gems on the island. The guides are at home here; you will walk together with the letter carrier, an artist, a refugee and a storyteller. Residents welcome you to their special locations where you can enjoy performances by (international) poets, Rotterdam spoken word artists and musicians from the festival line-up of the Po...
