Open call for designers, students and graphic artists - Transpoesie 2020”

EUNIC Brussels is looking for a designer to create the visual elements of the Transpoesie poetry festival in 2020.

Transpoesie is an annual poetry festival organised by the Brussels cluster of the network of European Union National Institutes for Culture, and its partners. The festival, now in its 10th year celebrates language diversity by bringing poetry in as many languages as possible to the general public in Brussels.

Our goal is to mark the annual European Day of Languages and Linguistic Diversity on 26 September by organising a series of events in September and October.

For the next edition of Transpoesie we are looking for a fresh, attractive design that may express poetical thoughts and captivate the attention of daily commuters in the public transport at the same time.
