First Workshop for Somali Speakers
Wednesday 25th May 2011 at 18:30
During a very lively evening, the highly enthusiastic group of Somali speakers translated a poem Faysal Aw-Cabdi. The workshop was a particularly special event as the poet himself was able to come along. It was a real pleasure having Faysal there and the group very much enjoyed quizzing the poet about the meaning of his love poem ‘Perfection'.
Alto will bring the literal translation of this poem to the Poetry Translation Workshop on Wednesday 29th June to create a new poem in English.
The workshop is free and is open to anyone who speaks Somali as their first language.

This workshop has been organised in collaboration with Kudu Arts, and with support from the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation.
