Event: Poetry Contest

Nobody is waiting for High Tech here.
And yet … it works.

As poetry is not a dead art in many countries – and surely not in hearts – starting Altair’s first year events with a poetry competition will be both surprising and ambitious.

The competition will be open in all languages ​​- if the authors agree that a translator helps with meaning – but not for musicality.

The poems will be said in their language, of course.
By the poet, or by the voice he will find the most beautiful to say.

All means of staging will be welcome.

in fact, what you want!

At the end, three poets will be selected – by the public and by the jury.

And so they will have a lot of work, because

they will be qualified for the Legendary Festival.

It will be necessary to associate with an artist of another kind, to realize a legendary work!

What is the relationship with the High Tech?
Play Skyrim, you will find bards.
Play Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, you will find poets.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey – with Socrates – Ubisoft (2018)
Skyrim – Bethesda (2011)

Yes, even games are open to poetry!
