Poets from Wales participate in Poetry Connections India workshop
Welsh poets Siân Melangell Dafydd and David Greenslade will take part in a Poetry Connections workshop held in India, between January 19 – 30 2015, co-ordinated by our sister organization, Literature Across Frontiers.
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 Poetry Connections workshop will take place 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. Other poets travelling to India for the workshop are Miguel Manso (Portugal) Heike Fiedler (Switzerland), Tsead Bruinja (Netherlands) 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.
Poetry Connections India project started in 2010. To find out more and watch a short film about the workshop visit the Literature Across Frontiers website.
