NUDO features videopoetry screenings, workshops, live performances and visual poetry exhibitions, all in an intimate environment where the love of words and beauty reigns. Held in Barcelona in several venues, its a party for the senses.

International Video Poetry Festival
(February 2020) in Athens, Greece is organized by the +Institute [for ExperimentalArts] and Void Network. Void Network began organizing multimedia poetry nights in 1990. Void Network and +the Institute [for Experimental Arts] believe that multimedia poetry nights and video poetry shows can vibrate in the heart of the metropolis, bring new audiences in contact with contemporary poetry, and open new creative dimensions for this ancient art.
