Curator Philip Meersman is also the coördinator of the World Poetry Slam Organisation that organizes the European and new Inclusive World Poetry Slam Championship.
As a multi-lingual poet, he stretches the limits of poetry in its written and spoken form. The news and socio-political and environmental issues are his starting point. Meersman performs all over the world and teaches workshops on experimental, visual and performance poetry.
Philip Meersman is a VUB alumnus in the Art Sciences and Archaeology department. He is studying for his doctorate at KASK Antwerp on the subject of transforming visual poetry to immersive experience.
