transpoesie

Date: 10 October 2019, 7 PM - Balassi Institute

The Hungarian Cultural Institute, partner from the beginning of the festival, opens its doors to the third poetry-reading event of 2019. The scene will vibrate from the different languages and fresh poetry from all corners of Europe. 

Three different voices, ideas and perspectives will collide, giving you the chance to discover five European cultures through poetry.
