Process Studios, Abbeymount Techbase, 2 Easter Road
Sunday sees the launch of ‘Flytte.’ – an evening of poetry and music on the theme of ‘displacement’.
Here you can listen to work that explores the theme of cultural displacement and have the opportunity to chat with our performers the effect place and displacement have on our creativity.
You will have the chance to discuss how we can explore this topic through literature and how this can help in our understanding of a widening cultural Scotland.
Confirmed poets: Bashabi Fraser, Jessica Johannesson Gaitán, Gerd Laugesen and Chris Jam.
The evening will finish with music from Edinburgh’s own Dallahan, a internationally renowned touring band, whose members make up of Scottish, Irish and Hungarian influence. see more at www.dallahanmusic.com
This initial evening will begin our documentation of Flytte which, after a series of forthcoming events will result in a publication. This publication aims to reflect the ideas of cultural displacement raised by all participants and should act as a publication to assist in a greater understanding of migration, it’s challenges and its benefits.
OBS! Doors close at 6.30.
Many thanks for the support of Process Studios, CityLink Festival, The Scottish Poetry Library, The University of Edinburgh’s Scandinavian Department, Dallahan and Nazia Mohammad.
