Gunnar Ragnarsson from Reykjavik, Iceland took part in the project Drop the Mic - Nordic Baltic Poetry Network in 2018-2020.
The project was supported by the Nordic Culture Point. Artists from Iceland, Estonia and Norway participated in the project DROP THE MIC on behalf of the UNESCO Cities of Literature Reykjavík, Tartu and Lillehammer. They are slam poets, authors, actors, directors, musicians. All have in common working with the written and spoken/sung word in some way.
The group met and worked together in different Cities of Literature in Europe in 2018 and 2019.
As a project, Drop the Mic aimed to connect performing artists that work with words and music from the UNESCO Cities of Literature Lillehammer, Reykjavík, Tartu, Heidelberg and Krakow.
