Dia Mundial da Poesia

Dia Mundial da Poesia

World Poetry Day

No dia 21 de março celebra-se o Dia Mundial da Poesia, data criada aquando da realização da 30ª Conferência Geral da UNESCO em 16 de novembro de 1999.

 O Dia Mundial da Poesia comemora a "diversidade do diálogo, a livre criação de ideias através das palavras, da criatividade e da inovação".


Held every year on 21 March, World Poetry Day celebrates one of humanity’s most treasured forms of cultural and linguistic expression and identity.

 UNESCO first adopted 21 March as World Poetry Day during its 30th General Conference in Paris in 1999, with the aim of supporting linguistic diversity through poetic expression and increasing the opportunity for endangered languages to be heard. World Poetry Day is the occasion to honour poets, revive oral traditions of poetry recitals, promote the reading, writing and teaching of poetry, foster the convergence between poetry and other arts such as theatre, dance, music and painting, and raise the visibility of poetry in the media. As poetry continues to bring people together across continents, all are invited to join in.
