Meeting of the Minds: festival special with Britta B.
Poet, artist, professor and lecturer Britta B. has made a name for herself as an important and interesting voice in Canada. Her work is to be found on stage, in print and as sound installations. She received the Toronto Arts Foundation Emerging Artist Award in 2021.
LitFestBergen is hosting the final of the Norwegian poetry slam championship, a contributory and inclusive form of poetic expression which Britta B. has much experience with. What is a poetry slam actually, and how did it originate? Answers to this question and many more will be sought by Doriansgrave, alias Michael W Opara, in this conversation.
Meeting of the Minds began as an open conversation about racism in Norway. Since 2020, Opara has invited a number of inspiring guests to Bergen’s House of Literature for informal discussions and exchanges around creativity, art, passion and life.
The event will be in English.
