#cocreatePOETICA

#cocreatePOETICA is an unique collaboration between #cocreateSANL, an initiative of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, and Open Book Festival. The purpose of the collaboration is to provide a platform for poetry, spoken word and rap to explore the shared culture and history between the Netherlands and South Africa and its implications for the present and future in a way that voices the young generation. Within this platform there is an interaction and exchange of ideas and between Dutch and South African poets resulting in new mutual understandings. These understandings are translated into poetry reaching both South African and Dutch publics.
