The third edition of the Naviar Haiku Fest, a day event exploring the relationship between music and haiku poetry, comes back to London for the second time after our first show in October last year.
We’ll start the event with an introductory workshop to haiku, a traditional short form of Japanese poetry. In the afternoon there will be a series of talks and panel discussions focused on creativity, ‘arts-meets-science’ and more.
The Haiku Fest will end with a series of live performances by members and friends of Naviar Records, working in the fields of ambient, electronic and contemporary classical music.
Location: The Old Church, Stoke Newington Church Street , N16 9ES London
Start at 10am till 10:30pm
10 – 1pm: haiku workshop
In the morning we’ll learn the history of haiku, the rules for writing one and its structure, how to add a kigo (seasonal reference) and Kireji (cutting word). We’ll also read and analyze some of the most famous haiku and haibun. At the end of the workshop, participants will have time to write their own poems.
2 – 5pm: creative talks
Listen to the stories of artists and artistic projects focused on studying the boundaries between art forms, exploring the role of technology in the artistic process and the new opportunities for creatives.
