World Poetry Day

21 of March was proclaimed as World Poetry Day by UNESCO to support linguistic diversity through poetic expression and to offer endangered languages the opportunity to be heard within their communities.

For the first time in Australia we are organising several events dedicated to Russian Literature in relation to World Poetry Day.

The Chair of the Australian National Commission for UNESCO Susan Pascoe has sent a greetings to Antipodes Association supporting our initiatives and wishing of success.
