Slam #Poetry Spring
2021-07-01/19:00 - 22:00
Kaunas love poetry! Therefore, for the second year in a row, Kaunas Artists’ House together with our closest neighbors – Kaunas Department of Lithuanian Writers’ Union, invites you to the Poetry Spring Slam. This event, at least symbolically, will combine modern literary experiments with the long-standing spirit of Poetry Spring.
While Kaunas Artists’ House yard is filled with construction equipment, Poetry Slams move into the yard of Kaunas Culture Center! There, despite the restrictions, all slam lovers will fit. Thank you to our partners KKC for the hospitality and we meet at Vytauto Ave. 79!
