Sofia Cerqueira and Zahna Siham Benamor, 2024

On two Tuesdays in April, poet and performer Zahna Siham Benamor and author Sofia Cerqueira invite you to join their writers’ workshops in the exhibition The False Rose of Jericho by Benamor and Apolonia Sokol.

Benamor and Cerqueira transform the exhibition space into a collaborative space for writing, inviting everyone interested to join a process of readings and writing exercises that offer reflection and contemplation. 

The workshops build on the exhibition. Each Tuesday will begin with readings from texts that have already been “produced” in the context of the exhibition, as inspiration or starting points; these might be a text written by Benamor or maybe a text written in one of the other writers’ workshops that previously took place in the exhibition.

Everyone is welcome and no special prerequisites are required to participate. During these writers’ workshops, you have the option to contribute to a collective text that will be produced by participants. The only thing important is that you want to try immersing yourself into the space and the poetry!

The two writers’ workshops by Zahna Siham Benamor and Sofia Cerqueira take place at O—Overgaden after hours on the following dates: Tuesday 23 April, 6–7.30pm and Tuesday 30 April, 6–7.30pm

Sign up by emailing It is free to participate in the workshop and also free to visit O—Overgaden, but you must sign up to reserve your spot, since we have a limited amount of space.

During the exhibition period, more writers’ workshops by grassroots organizations will take place at O—Overgaden. Find the full EVENT program on O—Overgaden’s website.
