Selected Poems. Spoken word and Catalan poetry with Anna Crowe and Noèlia Díaz Vicedo.

We wanted a richer festival this year with specific events to promote Catalan language, or as they say “llengua catalana” . With the help of University of Edinburgh we proudly present a unique chance to approach Catalan language trough its poetry.
