Rise Up: Poetic Memorial 2020

The interactive poetry project Rise Up started out with a question in the lead-up to the first anniversary of the Brussels terrorist attacks: can poetry play a part in discussing what has happened, and in healing together? It became a story of many layers, that we gladly keep writing year on year. Poem by poem we are building a Poetic Memorial in which a multitude of voices resound. Poetry – simultaneously vulnerable and powerful – as a means of dialogue between people who inhabit the same city, but seldom come into true contact with one another.

Rise Up stands for the city’s resilience, strengthened by encounters. After a trajectory of pre-workshops in various neighbourhoods, organisations and associations, participants from all sorts of backgrounds unite for a weekend-long multilingual poetry workshop, led this year by slam poetess Gioia Kayaga. The results of the workshops can be witnessed on 21 March in the intimate setting of our Brazza-bar.
