9th SARDAM interdisciplinary literature festival

24, 25 & 26 September 2021

SARDAM festival returns in its ninth edition. Writers-performers and other artists from Cyprus and abroad will be sharing original experiences of writing, reading, as well as innovative presentations/performances of literature, through a variety of events and workshops. Common ground will be the combination of literature and spoken word with traditional and modern means of expression like theatre, technology, slamming, visual arts, sound poetry, and so on.

This year’s SARDAM, due to Covid-19, will combine live readings/performances with pre-recorded acts. The workshops of the festival will be live and not online like last year, following all necessary safety measures against Covid-19. A safe pass and a mask will be required.
