Call for Submissions: Korea-Nigeria Poetry Fiesta 2012

In 2011, the Korea-Nigeria Poetry Fiesta was held for the first time to celebrate the 2011 World Poetry Day. This year, Arojah Concepts, in collaboration with the Korean Cultural Centre of the Republic of Korea embassy, calls on poets to send in entries for the second Korea-Nigeria Poetry Fiesta, which is scheduled to hold on Wednesday, March 21 2012, in commemoration of World Poetry Day.

Interested poets are to send in five poems each, based on the theme “Intangible cultural heritage ties between Korea and Nigeria”, to on or before March 10 2012.

“Intangible cultural heritage” means the practices, representations, expressions, knowledge, skills – as well as the instruments, objects, artifacts and cultural spaces associated therewith – that communities, groups and, in some cases, individuals recognize as part of their cultural heritage. This intangible cultural heritage, transmitted from generation to generation, is constantly recreated by communities and groups in response to their environment, their interaction with nature and their history, and provides them with a sense of identity and continuity, thus promoting respect for cultural diversity and human creativity.

Selected poems will be featured/performed at the World Poetry Day event, the Korean Cultural Centre website and in a proposed cross-cultural anthology. For more information, please call 0818 200 5597.
