Transpoesie is a literary festival that takes place in Brussels around the European Day of Languages, celebrated every year on September 26th. Since 2011, the festival has hosted numerous activities in September and October to highlight the richness and literary diversity of Europe. A distinct feature of the European Day of Languages involves exhibiting poems penned by authors from different parts of Europe. These poetic creations adorn public transport in their original languages, accompanied by translations into French and Dutch. In 2023, the writer Lizar Begoña will take part in the festival.
