We are Louise Nygård and Johanna Kronqvist, two literature geeks who like finding new creative solutions within our profession as Swedish teachers. Having grown up among fields and houses with white corners, we have a strong footing in Ostrobothnia.

Through literature, we see ways of people meeting each other and society becoming more humane. In our performance poetry workshop we want to pay attention to the genre and it’s potential. The core of the genre is performing poetry, but we will be focusing on the process. The purpose of the workshop is to give tools for writing, reading and performing. Performance poetry enables a creative use of language, polyphony and a personal expression.

During the night Johanna will be performing, followed by an Open Mic session. As a poet, Johanna is a cynical romantic who focuses on different issues in society with a personal voice.

Join us as we create together!
