‘Museumnacht Maastricht’ – Boekhandel Dominicanen and Maastricht University Library present ‘The future of the book challenge’! You are welcome to take part in ‘Spoken Word Maastricht 2017’ on Friday 7 April between 23.00 – 00.00 in the Dominican Church Maastricht, Dominicanerkerkstraat 1. Excited to create and perform your own ideas? We are looking for young writers/poets/singers and songwriters for our second edition of Spoken Word Maastricht.
Time to get creative!
After a great acclaim following last year’s Spoken Word event, we give you the opportunity to perform in the beautiful and international setting of the Dominican Church. As a participant, you will have access to our Special Collections. Get immersed in the theme of ‘future of the book’ and discover the possibilities that ancient literary heritage hold for the future. Unique literature consisting of fascinating historical collections of fairy tales and science fiction work of the era can serve as an inspiration to your performance and will be at your disposal. Make use of these amazing works and let your creativity ignite this theme into a verbal format!
