Project description:

Project ‘The Neighbors Are Noisy,’ lasting from 2012 till 2014, brings together 22 poets from various conflict zones – states drawn into armed conflicts, sites of cultural and values-based tension, places where cultural intolerance, prejudice and discord between neighboring countries prevails. ‘The Neighbors Are Noisy’ counters this tension with readings of poetry, workshops and public lectures and, in Riga, will be part of annual Days of Poetry festival.
