Austrian Poetry Celebration - European Poetry Festival

Fabian Faltin and SJ Fowler

A brilliant event celebrating contemporary Austrian poetry through three of its most dynamic and exciting practitioners, visiting London to present brand new collaborations, made for the night, with British counterparts. A full house witnessed the 5th Austrian celebration at the European Poetry Festival, and as before this event shared remarkable cross-genre and cross-lingual literature of the most original kind.

The event also saw the launch of a new publication in the Occasions series - an anthology documenting the collaborations that make up the history of the EPF and the ACF, published by Sampson Low.

The European Poetry Festival celebrates, in the UK and beyond, the grand resurgence in avant-garde and literary poetry that has marked the 21st century in Europe. It aims to not only innovate what a live poetry experience might be, but to inculcate community and engagement between poets across the continent, as well as between new audiences and complex poetries.

The Austrian Cultural Forum London promotes cultural contacts between the UK and Austria by organising events and supporting artists and projects in the fields of music, performing arts, visual arts, literature, film and science. We provide a venue in central London for recitals, lectures, readings, film screenings, conferences and exhibitions, while also cooperating with various partners throughout the UK.

The ACF London is the Cultural Section of the Austrian Embassy in London and offers free admission to all of its events, which are organised in cooperation with Austrian and Austrian-based artists. The ACF London arranges, initiates, facilitates and supports about 150 events per year, half of which take place at the ACF’s own premises at 28 Rutland Gate, in the heart of Knightsbridge.
