Poetry fans can expect a fantastic celebration of the spoken word from all over the world as Stockholm International Poetry Festival takes over Konstakadamien this weekend. They’re bringing poets from countries as diverse as Chile, Russia, Zambia, Syria, Czech Republic, Estonia, USA and Denmark to perform, along with local poets. This year’s theme is ‘finding home’, and things kick off with readings by Raúl Zurita, Maria Stepanova and Carolyn Forché on Friday.

The festival opens at 18:00 in Konstakadamien’s Nike Hall, and Friday’s events will include the award of the Mare Kandre Prize and the AKT UNG! young poets feature. Saturday features panel discussions on the subject of the festival’s theme along with more readings.

Day tickets clock in at 200kr with a full festival pass at 350kr.
