Meeting with poet from Lithuania

17004646_l_90331aeeb9d948df00d5c90c6f39ba8cMy friend Dominik advised me to meet his good friend Agnius for an interview. Recently Agnius participated in Women’s Museum (Kvindemuseet) temporary exhibition. It took part in August – October and the topic was “A world of stories”. Young people from different countries, currently living in Aarhus, presented their life stories in pictures, films and objects.

Agnius is 23 years old, he came from Lithuania.

And he is a talented person. First he told me about his exhibition. It took several weeks to prepare it, every young person had to organize his own place, and Agnius enjoyed this process. It was totally new experience.

Poet and artist

janisWhen I was going to “Løve’s Bog og Vin Cafe” to attend an event of ”Y Aarhus Poetry Club” I said to myself that I was just going to enjoy the performance of different poets. But the readings were so interesting and inspiring that I just needed to ask some of the writers for an interview.

The first person I talked to was Janis Lynn Frankø.

Within five minutes of talking with Janis, I already admired her. She is one of few people who is shining from an inside. She was smiling all the time, her eyes were just sparking with happiness and Janis was very honest about her life (an extremely interesting one).
