In our first year of being, we held an international arts festival, Artival. Back then writer and entrepreneur Sofie Kragh-Müller took on board a wonderful project that I had read about that was done in the USA, Raining Poetry. Unfortunately the collaboration with a Copenhagen-based writing school fell through, but we never let go of the idea.

The wheels were set in motion again last year after a few months of knowing and experiencing poet and dramaturge, Pauline Jupin. It was when I went to her readings at Poesiens Hus/ Den Frie and listened to her speak about her own project If it rains then I … (S’il pleut alors je …), that i realized that she was the perfect person to share this project with.

Here we are, six months later with a great team gathered together through the ImmigrantART network, funding applications submitted and we are on the look out for more people. The project is so beautiful that everyone involved so far has agreed to volunteer their time for it, with complete dedication whether we receive funding or not and we would like to continue in this spirit.

We are planning a happening for spring 2018 … we have writers, performance artists, and other creatives in the team and we are on the lookout for visual artists to document and share the expereince in images – photography and film … we would love to have a small team (2 – 4 people) for each.

If the idea and this post has awakened the smallest or biggest spark in you get in touch with Nicol and Pauline as soon as possible …

Have a wonderful day … whatever the weather …

I vores første år holdt vi en international kunstfestival, Artival. Derefter tog forfatter og iværksætter Sofie Kragh-Müller et vidunderligt projekt op, som jeg havde læst om det, og der blev gjort i USA, Raining Poetry. Desværre faldt samarbejdet med en københavnsk skriveskole igennem, men vi gav aldrig slip på idéen.

Hjulene blev sat i gang igen sidste år efter at jeg havde kendt og oplevet digter og dramaturge, Pauline Jupin. Det var da jeg lyttet til hende fortæller om sit eget projekt “Når det regner så jeg …” (S’il pleut alors je …) i Poesiens Hus / Den Frie, at det gik op for mig at hun var den perfekte person til at dele projektet med.

Her sidder vi seks måneder senere med et rigtig godt team samlet via ImmigrantART-netværket, finansieringsansøgninger indsendt, og vi er på udkig efter flere kunstneriske deltagere. Projektet er så smukt, at alle involverede hidtil har sagt ja til at give deres tid med 100% dedikation, om vi modtager finansiering eller ej, og vi vil gerne fortsætte i denne ånd.

Vi planlægger den første begivenhed i foråret 2018 … vi har forfattere, performance kunstnere og andre kreativer i teamet, og vi er på udkig efter visuelle kunstnere til at dokumentere og dele oplevelsen i billeder – fotografi og film … det ville være rart at have et lille hold (2 – 4 personer) for hver kunstart.

Hvis ideen og dette indlæg har vækket den mindste eller største gnist i dig, tag endelig kontakt til Nicol og Pauline så hurtigt som muligt.

Hav en dejlig dag … uanset vejret …
