Ars Poetica 2017

21. - 24.11.2017

The Ars Poetica International Poetry Festival is welcoming towards a wide audience and offers a wide spectrum of poetics and artistic experiences. It presents poetry, which comes in various forms of originality but is simultaneously open towards different types of people, mindsets and walks of life.

"The Ars Poetica International Poetry Festival is open to all who want to give poetry a chance to unexpectedly and incidentally pique their interest through an experience that they had no idea they might go through. It is about experiencing the beauty of that which seems like a mere word at first glance, but is in fact so much more: poetry; beauty as natural as an ordinary day," said poet and creative director of the Ars Poetica Festival Martin Solotruk.
