Founded 2019
heraklion , Greece


Our festival’s main goal is to promote as much as we can Greek civilization and more specific Crete’s tradition : Cretan poetry, oral tradition poetry and lyrics, music, folklore dances and many more cultural interests. On the other hand festival is going to be the meeting point of East and West, the bridge to connect poets, translation works and workshops. Different languages, cultures, ways of writing and expression will meet and cooperate in our festival. Our aim is to establish a new institution of literature and poetry, to bring together festivals from around the globe, to invite more and more poets every year from more and more countries every time. An institution which will provide free speech to every voice no matter the origin or the power.
