Here + There: The Waste Land Poetry Project
September 22 at 12pm
2022 is the centenary of the first publication of T S Eliot’s The Waste Land. One of the most influential poems of the twentieth century, it – alongside other great works of art and literature from that year – ushered in a new age of modernism.
Aké Festival, Bristol Ideas and Toronto International Festival of Authors has commissioned 12 poets – four each from the UK, Nigeria and Canada – to write new poetry in response to The Waste Land. These will be performed in Autumn 2022 as part of the Here + There project.
