Yemeni Female Poetry

Language and Culture
Wednesday 19 May 2021, 15:00 - 16:30 BST
As part of the Yemen in Conflict project, LAAF in partnership with Writing on the Wall brings together four Yemeni female poets.

About this event

Yemen in Conflict is an ongoing project between LAAF, the University of Liverpool and the University of Leeds. The project has involved people who are passionate about Yemen, its poetry and spoken word. Through several workshops that took place throughout the UK and Yemeni community, a series of commissioned poem films and a documentary film, the project was designed to inform people globally about Yemen and its conflict through poetry and art.

At this digital event, the four poets will have an opportunity to share their poetry and experiences and to listen to each other in front of a live audience.

Each of the four poets will read two of her favourite poems that she has created about the conflict in Yemen. The event will be moderated by a Yemeni female in the UK so that she can direct questions from the audience to the relevant poet either in Yemen or the UK. At the end of the event there will be a Q&A session.
