Equinoxes, poetic platform 2020/05/28

The poetic readings aloud during the 10 weeks of confinement end this Thursday, May 28 with a masterful bouquet of creative texts and contemporary poems, carried by the voices of artists around the world. A hundred speakers in total: artists, videographers, curators, authors… A tremendous sharing around the musicality of the texts and the power of the verb.

Poetry is more than ever our wind rose to all!

Long live Poetry!
