Korea - Nigeria Poetry Fiesta: Call for Submissions
Deadline: 10 March 2012

The first ever Korea –Nigeria Poetry Fiesta was held to commemorate the 2011 World Poetry Day with theme CULTURE OF FRIENDSHIP, with a cross-cultural anthology titled FROM HERE TO THERE scheduled for release later this year.

In view of these, Arojah Concepts, in collaboration with the Korean Cultural Centre of the Embassy of Republic of Korea invites interested poets to send in entries for the 2nd Korea-Nigeria Poetry Fiesta which is scheduled to hold on Wednesday 21st March 2012 in commemoration of this year’s World Poetry Day.

Interested poets are expected to send in 5 poems each based on the theme: Intangible Cultural Heritage ties between Korea-Nigeria to arojahconcepts@yahoo.com on before 10th March 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.
