Literature

  • Literature is once again in focus in this edition, this time with a programme that takes place in a new space. João Pedro Caliço “Tápê” takes the project "Poesias do Mundo" (World Poetry) to the recently opened Atlético, the emblematic building located on Rua 5 de Outubro.
    In partnership with Casa da Cultura de Loulé, this is an inclusive initiative where guests say/read poetry in their mother tongue. This year there will be representatives from Portugal, Cape Verde, Brazil, Guinea Bissau, Moldova, Ukraine, Venezuela, France and Ireland.
    The “Poesias do Mundo”, a project that started in 2016, will be present at the Festival MED for the fifth time. Since the beginning, more than a dozen and a half of different nationalities have been present, represented by more than 80 reciters, who kindly and passionately shared their art with hundreds of other people.
    Therefore, this is a distinctive project, a space where the word, the book and poetry are present and which contributes to the richness of the cultural diversity of the Festival MED.
