Share This!

Brussels Poetry Fest is a niche festival, completely dedicated to the contemporary avant-garde, not afraid to start a dialogue with the mainstream.  During the fourth edition of the Brussels Poetry Fest, the best of the international poetry scene will experiment four days long in new and unusual places in Brussels. The inspiration for this 4th edition is the work of René Magritte and his “La Trahison des Images.”

From September 7 till 10, international poets experiment at the Royal Observatory, GC Essegem, the Public Libraries of Jette, the cultural centre of Jette centre Armillaire, Musée Magrittemuseum Jette, Café De Boerkes, in the public space and on a train in Jette, Het Goudblommeke van Papier-La Fleur en Papier Doré, the BELvue Museum, the Coudenberg Palace and on the web.

This is a project by be.poetic vzw. Discover the complete program and purchase tickets (including a 30€ all-access pass) on http://poetryfest.brussels
