World Poetry Day !

UNESCO declared 21st of March World Poetry Day in this way UNESCO recognises the unique ability of poetry to capture the creative spirit of the human mind.

Poetry is maybe one of the oldest arts, for centuries it was used to transmit cultures traditions and folk stories and helped transmit the innermost values of diverse cultures.

So why create this World Poetry Day ? One of the main objectives is to support the linguistic diversity through poetic expression and also to offer endangered languages an opportunity to be heard within their own communities and around the world.

This day also aims to encourage people to maintain poetry recitals and to support small publishers so it doesn’t become an extinct type of art.
