Do we often reach for poetry by our own will and initiative? Probably not. That is why today, on 14th February, we took part in the action: The 7th National Poetic Anti-Valentine’s Day. The idea was born among the Poznań artists associated with the Literary Group - Na Krechę. The action consisted in giving away beautiful, original postcards containing poems about love as well as images, photos and graphics. In accordance with the idea of this national poetic initiative, it is a response to Valentine “hearts and roses” kitsch and encourages people to reach for poetry volumes not only “on special occasions” but also “on a daily basis”. May we have more opportunities to interact with such interesting work!
