WE CAN NO LONGER LIVE WITHOUT POETRY, COLOUR, LOVE | Celebration of International Colour Day and World Poetry Day, March 21st 2019
"We can no longer survive on refrigerators, politicians, card games, crosswords and puzzles. We can no longer live without poetry, color, love" writes Antoine de Saint-Exupéry in Letter to General X, (1943), during World War II. The Portuguese Colour Association, in collaboration with the P’Arte, CEC - Centre for Comparative Studies, the Colour and Light Research Group, CIAUD - Research Centre in Architecture, Urban Planning and Design (both from the University of Lisbon) returns to this idea to celebrate Colour and Poetry, on march 21st, 2019, through a Poetry Reading Encounter dedicated to Colour, starting at 18h30, O'Malta Bistro Bar, Rua Carvalho Araújo, 24 Lisbon. We invite you to read unpublished poems or poems already published under the theme colour. From this sharing will result a compilation of poetry to be edited and published after the event.
If you can’t participate in Lisbon, but, nevertheless, you would like to collaborate to the diversity and joy of this event, please send a poem to the email firstname.lastname@example.org, and this poem will be read in your name.
