Part of: Ribka Sibhatu Tour Ribka Sibhatu: Activism Through Poetry - English PEN Members Online Event
To mark the publication of Ribka Sibhatu’s Aulò! Aulò! Aulò! English PEN members are invited to join a conversation with the author and her translator André Naffis-Sahely to discuss her poetry and activism for refugees in Europe, the migrant crisis and against the regime of her home.
As an activist as well as a poet her work offers an insight into the extraordinary vulnerability of refugees and migrant workers and beyond writing she has worked across a spectrum of activism from community groups right to lobbying parliament. Writing in Tigrinya, Ahmaric and Italian, her passion for these stories is infectious and captivating.
Ribka Sibhatu's events have been supported by the European Union's Creative Europe culture programme.
