‘Rebuilding Values’: Live Audience Interview with Ramsey Nasr

05/11/2013 at 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

What are the dreams, ambitions and sources of inspirations of poet, writer and actor Ramsey Nasr? Come and join our Live Audience Interview on 5 November. The interview is part of a series of events that the Dutch Centre & the Netherlands Embassy will be organising under the theme of ‘Rebuilding Values’. Nasr will be interviewed – in English – by Titia Ketelaar, UK & Ireland correspondent at NRC Handelsblad, one of the leading newspapers in the Netherlands.

About Ramsey Nasr

Palestinian-Dutch Nasr (1974) is a man of many passions which arise from a love of art – classical music, theatre, poetry – as well as a serious engagement with current affairs and politics. He was Poet Laureate of the Netherlands between 2009 and 2012. Prior to that, he was City Poet of Antwerp, his adopted hometown. He quickly won the hearts of the Flemish people, and his appearances attracted fans like pop concerts. His first English-language collection, Heavenly Life, was published in 2010. The collection was translated by award-winning translator of Dutch literature David Colmer, and published by Banipal Books. Nasr is currently on stage with Theatre Group Amsterdam, playing Jamie in Eugene O’Neill’s Long Day’s journey into Night.
