  • An evening of poetry and discussion dedicated to rebel poet Forugh Farrokhzad and her legacy on international contemporary poets and artists. What’s it like to be the first person to publish writing from the perspective of a woman in your country? During the 1960s in Iran, a time when literature and the arts, and the majority of daily life, was dominated by men, poet Forugh Farrokhzad did exactly that. Now considered an iconic figure from her own time, Farrokhzad radically broke convention through her unapologetic storytelling of the reality of being a woman and has since captured the imaginations of generations of Iranians. The show features contemporary poets and artists here in the UK who have been influenced by this landmark poet.
