Join international poet and artist Caroline Bergvall for free on the 27 November at 6 - 9pm as she leads her ground-breaking online writing event Night & Refuge, alongside five other established international writers.

Caroline has invited five multilingual poets and performance artists to write a poem following a strict brief while discussing important themes of migration, identities under pressure, ancient and new cultural memory as well as art as a refuge.

This global online event will explore what it means to seek refuge and how to renew and restore our life and art energy for new communal practices at this time of intense global crises. The backdrop to the work is the internet, where networks are created and experiences exchanged to develop a shared respite that blends borders, languages, identities and performance practices.

You are invited to watch the process, engage and join in with this restorative event, Night & Refuge for FREE by reserving a space via eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/caroline-bergvall-sonic-atlas-present-night-refuge-live-writing-tickets-127433078769

Audiences can comment and take part on Twitter on the night using the hashtag #nightandrefuge.
The event closes with a reading of the poem by the six poets.

Internationally-regarded writers and performers taking part include:
- Gunnar Wærness (Norway)
- Jessie Kleemann (Greenlandic Inuk living in Copenhagen)
- Erín Moure (Canada)
- Edwin Torres (New York, USA)
- Mandla Rae (Zimbabwean living in London)

Night & Refuge has been commissioned by Oslo International Poetry Festival and will be screened as part of the Festival Programme.
