Washing hands? Read a poem! Since corona we wash our hands more thoroughly than ever. How nice it is to read a beautiful Frisian poem during those twenty seconds? That is possible with Wjerspegelje, a project of Leeuwarden UNESCO City of Literature and Merk Fryslân.

Wjerspegelje is a project after the example of Zwolle (weerspiegelen.nl) and is implemented with the support of the province of Fryslân.

The fifty Frisian poems by 28 poets can be found on mirrors in toilets at more than 200 locations throughout the province: in hotels, restaurants, libraries, schools and town halls. With the QR code you can also read the Dutch translations of the poems.
