The Embassy of Malta in Warsaw participated in a project initiated by EUNIC – the European Union National Institutes for Culture – branch in Warsaw entitled: ‘Poems in the City 2021’.

 

The objective of the project is to enable poetry originating from European Union countries to be given exposure in as wide a public as possible. To this end, EUNIC collaborated with the local authorities in Warsaw to have poems, in their original language, to be displayed in prominent places in Warsaw throughout most of the month of April.

 

The Embassy of Malta in Warsaw requested the support and sponsorship of the Arts Council Malta with a view to identify the poet representing Malta and also to sponsor her participation. The theme chosen for this edition of ‘Poems in the City 2021’ was Community.

 

For this edition of Poems in the City 2021, the poem chosen is called “qtar” written by Ms Nadia Mifsud Mutschler, accompanied by a translation to Polish by Ms Zuzanna Gawron. The poem is also displayed on the fence of the Romanian Cultural Institute in Chopin Street, in the centre of Warsaw, together with other poems taking part in the EUNIC Warsaw project.
