My city on the map, my place in the world - Poetry to postpone the end of the world -

We live in a world where everything necessarily seems to have a function, a purpose. Everything leads us to good results, to an idea of ​​success always related to large amounts of money and status. From this perspective, art may seem out of place: after all, what is the purpose of contemplating works of art, poems and films?

      Art enters our lives to provoke established logic. Relieves, inspires, motivates and excites. Furthermore, it shows that life can also exist without the focus being just on working, on accumulating money, on spending hours away from those you love to play roles that don't always make sense. In this way, what makes poetry fundamental to life is the invitation to appreciation. A book of poems asks to be read calmly, savoring each verse, trying to relate it to our personal experiences. It is not something to be done in a hurry, it requires pause, interpretation and appreciation. It allows the construction of symbols and metaphors because it plays with rhythms, sounds, and language. It enriches our critical reading, our ability to interpret and create. For children, poetry can be an essential ally in improving reading competence. It can also transport the little ones to another creative world, serving as a stimulus for them to create their own verses so that they transform their look at the world into written emotion. That there is more space in our lives for poetry and that it can be present to renew the values ​​of our society. This project is an attempt to rescue a little of that magic, that power to enchant poetry has. We understand poetry as language, symbolism, and reflection, thinking-poetry, but also rhythm, dance, music, feeling, emotion, revolution, manifesto, poetry that has a social function, poetry with a humanized, ethical character, capable of changing the world. The ultimate goal is for each class to make a video letter/video poem. Visually working poetry with methods such as theatrical interpretation, drawing, dance, photography, where it shows, presents, suggests, its experience of the city and everyday stories: its neighborhood, street, square, garden, playground.
