POETRY FESTIVALS

We build our Fiestas de la Poesía with our own hands so words can come to life. We open these spaces for poetic expression through music and performance. We want to present body-to-body encounters with poetry, shows that connect us with the power of language and help us imagine times, forces, materialities that allow for an expansion into plural ways of living life.

These celebrations are free and open to the public. We hold them in popular spaces that aren’t necessarily associated with cultural events.

(If you’d like to support us with a space, contact us at colectivocomounlugar@gmail.com)

The Fiestas de la Poesía are part of our mission to support poets, whose work is often remunerated insufficiently or not at all. We hope to keep developing these gatherings as spaces where the Latin American community and allies can relish and celebrate the power of words – and where the joy of making art can awaken and flourish in our lives.
