The Camarade is a way to bring together dozens of European poets to London to collaborate, perform and to build connections that will last for decades. The event has become a mainstay of The Enemies Project and is the tradition on which the festival has been founded. Collaboration inculcates not only an open, welcoming atmosphere at live literary events, but inherently inspires innovation in the works being performed.
