Schamrock Festival Munich

5. 11. - 5. 11. 2022

Munich, Germany

The Schamrock project was founded in Munich in 2009. In the salons that Schamrock organized in the early years, there was (and is) not only reading, but also discussions about the conditions of lyrical writing for women. They wanted to encourage female poets to develop extraordinary ideas and fresh forms with creative fury and poetic verve. In the first three decades of the 20th century, Munich was a center of the cultural-revolutionary protests of young female painters and writers. The women poets’ shamrock salon and the resulting festival have their roots in this tradition.

This year’s focus of the festival is on Slovenia. Performers: Miljana Cunta, Barbara Korun and Ana Pepelnik, who will perform in a duet with double bass player Tomaž Grom. The event will be moderated and translated by Amalija Maček.
