Poetry Periscope comes to Edinburgh

Poetry Periscope comes to Edinburgh

March 28, 2017

This year Edinburgh City of Literature Trust will be working with the Czech Centre London and Piana na Ulici to facilitate the Edinburgh mini-tour of the Poetry Periscope. The bright yellow jukebox made its debut in London at the British Library, part of the European Literature Festival, and will now be coming to Scotland for the first time.

The Periscope contains 30 poems from 30 European poets that can be listened to in their original language as well as in translation, and will be making its first Scottish appearance at the Edinburgh International Science Festival, before visiting key venues around the city.


The Poetry Periscope, originally developed in the Czech Republic, is a joint project by the Czech Centre London and Piana na ulici organised on behalf of EUNIC London. It was part of the 2016 European Literature Festival organised by EUNIC London and initiated by the Czech Centre in partnership with the British Library.
