Poetry slam in prison

with No Comments

The NGO “Landkulturschaffende Südwest” organises literary events in the south-west of Germany in places where there is little or no cultural offer, including prisons and clinics. A poetry slam recently took place in Siegburg prison south of Cologne. Life should also take place behind bars to encourage people and open up new perspectives. The directors of the prison believe that culture is part of this and invited poets to a slam in the prison. Inmates took part in the competition with their own texts. The German television broadcaster ZDF was there. Watch the three-minute programme here.
