A Festival of Poetry, 14–21 September 2017.

Poetry on the Move is a three-year poetry project hosted by the International Poetry Studies Institute (IPSI) based within the Centre for Creative and Cultural Research (CCCR), Faculty of Arts and Design, University of Canberra.

The project explores poetry’s ability to move from—and interrogate—its place on the printed page.

All events are free, but bookings are essential on Eventbrite.

The schedule, spread over eight days, features 75 poets and other contributors, and we are privileged to have such a wealth of creative talent converging on our city during this short space of time.

Poets in Residence:  Vahni Capildeo (UK) and Glyn Maxwell (UK).

Most events take place on the University of Canberra campus in Bruce (campus map); for others we move to city centre locations, the Belconnen Arts Centre, and the National Portrait Gallery.
