27th Medellin International Poetry Festival

08/07/2017 - 15/07/2017

The International Poetry Festival of Medell’ín is one of the largest and most prestigious poetry festivals in the world. It started in 1991, when Medell’ín was one of the most dangerous and violent cities in the world. Through poetry readings in the streets, people have reclaimed their city.

During the annual Festival, there are public readings of poetry in the streets, in parks, residential areas, at the university and libraries, in theatres, cooperatives, schools and cultural centres, restaurants, malls, subway stations, factories, churches and even in prisons.

Martin von HildebrandBianca Jagger and Helen Mack will participate at this year Festival edition.
