Jairo García Jaramillo at “Sábado en armas”

Javier Egea wrote that poetry is a “pequeño pueblo en armas contra la soledad”. From the Asociación Cultural del Diente de Oro, we want to contribute to raise that small town and with that motivation we start a new cycle of poetic meetings with the collaboration of Granada City of Literature UNESCO. “Sábado en armas” aims to create a space where once a month on Saturday is poetry, a joyful occasion for dialogue and community that resists violence and disaffection of our world.

Organized by: Asociación del Diente de Oro and Granada UNESCO City of Literature Office. Collaborator: Centro Federico García Lorca.
