The Museum of Peace - MAMT has organized the "World Poetry Day" on its multimedia platform, at this very difficult time for everyone.
Poetry reaffirms our common humanity by showing that people all over the world share the same questions and the same feelings. Poetry is the backbone of oral tradition and, over the centuries, has shown how it can communicate the deepest values ​​of different cultures.
In celebrating World Poetry Day on March 21, the United Nations Organization for Education, Science and Culture (UNESCO) recognizes the unique ability of poetry to reflect the creative spirit of individuals.
One of the main objectives of the day is to support the linguistic and cultural diversity of our societies through poetic expression and to offer languages ​​that risk disappearing the possibility of being listened to within their communities.
The celebration of World Poetry Day also aims to:

  • encourage a return to the oral tradition of poetry recitals;
  • promote the teaching of poetry;
  • re-establish a dialogue between it and other arts such as theater, dance, music and painting;
  • support small publishers;
  • create an attractive image of poetry in the media, so that the art of poetry is no longer considered as an obsolete art form, but which allows society as a whole to find and affirm its own identity.

CONTEXT
Celebrated on March 21 of each year, the World Poetry Day pays tribute to one of the most ancient and precious forms of expression and to the cultural and linguistic identities of humanity. Practiced throughout history - in every culture and every continent - poetry speaks to our humanity and our common values, transforming the simplest poems into a powerful catalyst for dialogue and peace.
The decision to proclaim World Poetry Day on March 21 was first adopted in 1999, on the occasion of the 30th session of UNESCO in Paris. The primary objective is to support linguistic diversity through poetic expression and increase the chances of languages ​​at risk of being heard.
World Poetry Day is an opportunity to honor the authors of poetry and to promote and practice reading, writing and teaching poetry, in particular by giving it greater visibility in the media. Poetry continues to bring people together across continents and generations.
