Welcome to getting familiarized with emptiness; your personal space of play and imagination, where lyrical revenue is derived from stopping by your inner space and stillness. Workshop is meant for the members of Helsinki Poetry Connection. It starts with short presentation about Colombian nadaism poetry. Nadaism is philosophical and artistic movement from the 1950s-60s characterized by counterculture, the everyday and existential nothingness (nada = nothing) that revolutionised Colombian art scene – especially that of poetry – to this date. After the presentation new texts from the void will be created with the help of writing tasks. Texts written in the workshop will be presented and commented on together in a supportive manner adhering to HPC’s safer space principles.

The workshop will be conducted multilingually by nadaism poetry translator and poet Ainokaisa ”Aika” Huusko and poet-producer Tania Nathan. There are 30 workshop places available and please, sing up by sending e-mail to ainokaisa.huusko@gmail.com or nathan.tania@gmail.com along with your preferred workshop language (fin/eng) by 14.11.2022. Free entrance for HPC members and there will also be snacks & drinks available. If you are not a member of HPC and would like to join, you can do so during your workshop registration (15 eur / year).
