hurray for delay


March 2011: On the occasion of the Passa Porta Festival 2011, the Brussels Poetry Collective rented an old railway carriage. The poets rode twice with the public from Brussels Central Station to Groenendaal, at the border of the Brussels-Capital Region: a half hour ride. Along the way, the Poetry Collective read poetry about the passing urban landscape. The "Hurray for delay" bundle, published for the occasion, was available free to all fellow travellers.

With new work by poets Taha Adnan, Frank De Crits, Serge van Duijnhoven, Koor, Maky, Manza, Els Moors, José Ovejero, Xavier Queipo, Silvia Vainberg, David van Reybrouck, Peter Vermeersch and Bart Vonck.
