The Transpoesie initiative of the EUNIC network celebrates the International Day of European Languages in Brussels each year. The event leads poetry to every corner of the city, through different media and events. And this year they have launched a new website where European authors’ poems are gathered in the original version, and where you can read works by two Basque writers: Bernardo Atxaga and Itxaro Borda.

The new website brings together poems by authors from all over Europe in different languages (original version, English and French. The Etxepare Basque Institute became an associate member of the Europe cluster of EUNIC, the network of National Institutes of Culture of the European Union  in 2015, and with their support Basque authors participate annually in Transpoesie.

The goal of the past four editions was to put poetry into the Brussels public space, in the tramways, the metro trains, the busses. This year they are focusing on the quality of the poetry events and the launch of a brand-new website. Over the past 4 years, 100 European poets have presented their poems in the framework of the project. The public of Brussels gets a chance to discover the great variety of languages and literary talent in Europe, enriching their daily routines with a unique and creative experience.
