Science Slam: Research meets Poetry Submission Deadline

  • rijksuniversitait groningen (map)

You're a PhD candidate and you want to share your passion for research? Guided by our local UG poets Rachel Reatzer and Esmé van den Boom, you will speed-date a poet and within 2-3 hours you will transform your research topic into a short poem. During the actual slam you and the poet will present the result to the public in the Usva theater. This can be a poem, a rhyming dialogue between you and your poet, a rap or a spoken word poem, in Dutch, in English... Anything goes. The audience decides who wins.
