‘Poetry in potato bags’ sees rural-literary cultural exchange between Malta and the Netherlands

On January 29 at 19:00 at Palazzo de la Salle (Malta Society of Arts) in Republic Street, two Dutch and two Maltese poets will be reading their poetry as part of the Poetry in Potato Bags project. The event is being organized by the Embassy of the Netherlands and Inizjamed in collaboration with the Valletta 2018 Foundation. The Dutch Frisian-language poets invited to Malta are Hein Jaap Hilarides, who is also a musician, and Janneke Spoelstra. The Maltese writers are Adrian Grima and Rita Saliba. Michael Caruana from Qrendi, who visits Dutch potato farmers regularly, will be speaking during the evening about his experiences as a potato farmer and exporter in Malta. This event is part of the run up to the 2018 European Capital of Culture of both Valletta and Leeuwarden.
