The World, a Giant Poem: Poetry creates dialogue and understanding for peace

© DR

This is an initiative that connects elements of poetry, visual creation, society, and is an effective tool for people to build platforms to work together and establish channels for dialogue and peace among nations and people.

The projects' objectives are to:

  • promote peace and understanding of the diverse cultures and faiths, especially amongst youth.
  • encourage the use of arts, especially poetry, for the promotion of peace, dialogue and non-violence.
  • use artistic and social performance skills as an effective tool for the promotion of dialogue among cultures.
