Poet of Fryslân opens new online culture stage


It is World Poetry Day and today at 3:00 pm the Poet of Fryslân opens the new online culture stage of Leeuwarden-Fryslân 2028 with, among other things, the recitation of his latest poem ‘Down with a cold’, which he wrote in response to the Corona crisis.

Now that theaters, music venues, bars, clubs and village buildings are closed, does not mean that art and culture have disappeared. That is why Leeuwarden-Friesland 2028 will open an online Facebook culture stage today. Especially for makers, listeners, viewers and creatives. Who wants to participate in the online culture stage can send his or her contributions to content@lf2028.eu.
