Presentation of the school poetry project
Two students of the Johan de Witt college in the Hague will present the results of a poetry project in cooperation with Huis van Gedichten (House of poems). About twenty students, varying in age from 15 to 19 years old, have each written a poem around the theme of this year's festival, 'Word and Image'. During the writing workshops the students were led by amongst others the poet Alfred Schaffer. This evening the two best poems will be introduced by Alfred Schaffer and recited by the young poets themselves.
