Poetry Reading and Award Ceremony
The past couple weeks saw LUGO organise its Spring Poetry competition on the theme: Environmental Guilt.
Environmental guilt reflects the dread associated with feeling as though you will never be doing enough to save the planet, and/or that you should be doing more. LUGO saw the relevance in acknowledging the validity of these feelings in its students and staff and providing a space to voice them through poetry. As such, we asked you: What is your relationship to (environmental) Guilt? What is it to be guilty at all?
We received a variety of submissions. To highlight these and award our 1st place prize, we have organised a reading and award ceremony. To attend and support our poets, please register here.
Did you not have time to submit but would like to read a poem on the theme? Email firstname.lastname@example.org before the 8th of May to discuss the possibility of doing so.
LUGO has also organised a clotheswap, to exchange your valued but no longer used clothing for clothing you will use!
How it works:
- Find the clothes lying at the back of your closet, still in perfect condition, that you don't wear anymore.
- Join us on May 10th and receive a token for each item you give in (maximum of 5 tokens provided).
- Exchange your tokens for new items you really love while making someone else happy.
Joining us from the Hague? Optional: Hand in your clothes and receive your tokens for the event a day early (May 9th) at Wijnhaven.
