LITERATURHAUS IS CLOSED FOR THE PUBLIC - SOMMERTID POETRY FESTIVAL POSTPONED

Due to the latest development concerning the COVID-19 in Denmark, LiteraturHaus has shut down all public events. This also includes our poetry festival Sommertid.

We are of course saddened by the decision, but considering the situation and the authorities’ advice we don’t see any other options. We hope we can find the opportunity to hold our events in the future, but as it is now, we can’t say anything about when.

At the same time, we are looking into how we can ensure that LiteraturHaus is able to meet the financial challenges that this situation presents. We are in contact with public authorities and hope they can support us at some level.

That said, our thoughts are first and foremost with those who are more vulnerable than us. We are thinking of the millions of refugees who do not have the same security as us. We think of the homeless, the sick, and everyone else who right now fear for their safety. Let’s do what we can to support them.

With wishes of love and good health to all!
