Support and Sponsors
Kistrech International Poetry Festival in Kenya gets support from art agencies and embassies around the world. These art agencies include Dutch Foundation for Literature who funds Dutch poets. NORLA (Norwegian Literature Abroad) who funds Norwegian poets. Danish Arts Foundation who supports Danish poets. Canada Council for the Arts and Artsnb.ca supports Canadian poets to the festival.
Israel Embassy-Nairobi supports the Israeli poets and also gives a ‘small’ support to the festival. Ministry of Education and Culture of Cyprus supports poets from Cyprus. Goethe Institut-Nairobi funds poets from Germany. Spanish Embassy-Nairobi supports Spanish poets to participate in the festival. Kisii University in Kenya provides transport and venue. In trouble are the poets from African countries that don’t seem to have any funding for their participation — any support for them out there for them?
