Bowery Poetry, 308 Bowery, NYC (map)

Presented by the Endangered Language Alliance in conjunction with Bowery Arts and Science.

Sitting in one of the global centers of power and influence as well as immigration from all areas of the world, we have the unique opportunity to put unjustly marginalized languages in the spotlight.

Unheard Of! presents live readings of poetry and oral literature both traditional and modern by native speakers with simultaneous projections of texts and translations.

Come join us on Sept 29th from 1:00-3:00 pm at Bowery Poetry for the first installment featuring poetry and stories from five local languages of Indonesia as presented by native speakers:

Ngaju Dayak (Kalimantan)

Tontemboan (North Sulawesi)

Betawi (Jakarta)

Aceh (North Sumatra)

Bugis (South Sulawesi)
