Poetics of Endangered Species
Project will be based on an illustrated poetry book executed in collaboration of poets and artists from different countries and various fields of art. In that book poetry and natural sciences as well as fine arts come together to convey a message to people from species that are gradually disappearing from nature around us.
Project aims at directing people’s attention to vulnerability of nature and the importance of protecting nature and its living creatures. Therefore they would encourage their potential partners to work together with Museums of Natural History or organizations with scientific competence in the field of nature in each participating country to unite the artistic aspect with the one of scientific.
Books for each country will be hand-made starting from paper production and artistic works up to book binding and leather craft. Poets, calligraphers, graphic artists, icon painters, experts of paper production, bookbinders and masters of leather craft all work together in order to create this unique set of books for the project area and for each separate participating country. In the course of this project during introductory seminar creators of various arts will participate in workshops and consultations regarding the input to this project which will manifest at the end of the project through works of art being created and demonstrated in exhibitions and promoted through seminars and conference. During the course of the project open workshops and masterclasses for wider audiences will be organized in each project country.
