SANAVANA offers poetic poetry experiences in several different languages. The poems are presented both in the original language and as translations. The events are co-produced by Sivuvalo Platform ry, which promotes the visibility of the work of writers writing in languages other than Finnish and the conditions for working in Finland.
The event will be hosted by Kasper Salonen. Salonen is a bilingual poet, spoken word artist and translator.
Salonen's own poems (Finnish, English) will also be heard at the event.
