A POETS’ AGORA is an open bilingual conversation
around the poetry of living Greek
and Greece-inspired authors.
The word ‘AGORA’ stems from its ancient meaning as spelled out by Lolita Georgiou “From the moment people began to organise themselves into groups they had to have a place where they could meet…We know that the Greek word for such a place is agora, from the verb ‘agorevein’ (speak), which shows clearly its initial function.”
The events take place as a poetry reading with a theme:
In November 2015 ‘MUTED’
In December 2016 ‘LULL’
In December 2017 ‘RISK’
Three authors read an original poem composed for the event and their own published poems followed by a discussion on the content of their poetry and the art of poetry in contemporary Greece.
