Museumnacht Maastricht’ – Boekhandel Dominicanen and Maastricht University Library present ‘The Greek challenge’! You are welcome to take part in ‘Spoken Word Maastricht 2016’ on Friday 15 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/singer songwriters for our first edition of Spoken Word Maastricht.

We give you the opportunity to perform in the beautiful and international setting of the Dominican church. 

You will have access to our Special Collections, more specific our collection of old and fascinating Greek myths. Recreate the story of Ikaros, who burned himself trying to reach for the sun or write a poem about king Midas, who turned everything he touched into gold. Themes like identity, decay, loneliness and hybris are at your disposal.

Are you up to the challenge?        

Subscribe before 15 March and get an inspiring tour in English of the Special Collections of Maastricht University. Limited spots available! Contact us at
