17th – 21st October 2019

Founded in 2015, the Poetry on the Move is a fully curated festival run by the International Poetry Studies Institute at the University of Canberra. IPSI’s objectives are to promote poetry as a globally valuable art form through the engagement with international, national and local poetry communities.

The festival will run from the 17th – 21st October at various locations in Canberra, including our festival hub and festival partner Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centre, our evening readings venue Smith’s Alternative, The National Portrait Gallery and the Canberra Museum and Gallery, where we’ll be holding our poetry symposium.
