World Poetry Day and Harmony Day celebration: Poetry has a thousand faces

supported by City of Sydney

World Poetry Day and Harmony Day celebration: Poetry has a thousand faces
Celebrate Harmony Day and World Poetry Day on 21 March. The United Nations recognises the unique ability of poetry to capture the creative spirit of the human mind. This internationally celebrated day allows us to pay tribute to all those men and women who strive to build a better world using words as their only tool. Poetry allows individuals, as well as whole societies, to discover and assert their identity. The event will invite poets, performers from different cultural backgrounds, and different age groups to express their voice among the community of nations.
