A Public Encounter with the Lyrical Self

Saturday, May 14th

16.00  A Public Encounter with the Lyrical Self in front of the University of Tartu Library.

On the last day of the Prima Vista Festival, everybody has a rare opportunity to meet genuine mental giants of world cultural thought history, whose importance in the formation of our language, culture , and national consciousness is hard to underestimate. The public encounter with the lyrical self is a performative common meditation dealing with the ways of  existence of poetry in culture, in the reality around us and above all in the hearts of the people. Is it not true that poetry creates us as much as we create poetry? To this encounter with the lyrical self a poetry book close to your heart may be taken along.

The public encounter with the lyrical self is a preliminary event of the Prima Vista Festival Futures Better and Worse which will take place within the framework of European Capital of Culture Tartu 2024.
