- About “Commune of Poetry Project” -
Commune of Poetry is also known as the collaborative community of public education of poetry and art. It is a cross-border cultural collaborative project designed and launched by Zhang Er and Wang Ao, with the ambition to integrate international culture and intelligence resources pertinent to poetry, in addition to investigating and bringing together different disciplines and arts.
The objective of Commune of Poetry is to integrate the intelligence resources available in different countries and professional area, overcoming the uneven resource distribution and separation among professions. It invites talents of all disciplines and fields relevant to poetry and art from all over the world to spontaneous creation and experiment, blended upon the foundation of a mix of talk and performance, such that the learned audience is exposed to a transparent interface of knowledge exchange. A new product of intelligence thus comes into light, which constitutes a new form of knowledge propagation and new model of skill education of. Eventually, Commune of Poetry will transform offline events to online video broadcasting and provides, through sharing channels such as the Internet and the latest generation of media, an educational platform to a much larger group hoping to broaden their base of knowledge, skills and creativity.
The Poetry Commune is organized by Shenzhen Enclave Media, collaboratively produced and operated internationally by Frank F. Yang Art and Education Foundation and Tai Yi Association.
