INSIDE THE ART CAFE with Legendary Artist Antje Stehn.


Three years ago I met Ana Pedroso, a Cuban poet who lives in Milan. She worked in the association Poetry is my passion which organizes events with the international artist community in Milan. Straight away we found out, that we were a perfect mixture of working-mentality, she has the Latin spontaneity and I have the German organization. In these three years we have organized more than 50 events in different places in Milan. We brought poetry to strange places like Jazz clubs, fashion fairs, in the courtyards, on the street. The aim is to bring poetry to people who normally don’t listen to poetry. We now are 5 In our team, Betty Gilmore , an afro -american blues poet singer, Rufin Doh a poet, and famous actor from Ivory Coast, Meisam Seraj from Iran, Ana Pedroso from Cuba and me the only European.

Time of the griot with Legendary Poet Hannie Rouweler.


Her simplified verse is deep, as it raves the core of the inner of marrow and then cuts through our COVID 19 hardened mental boxes to reawaken of consciousness. Her pen spits metaphors carefreely. Rouweler was born with a poetry golden spoon stuck on her tongue, baptized and sanctified by the incense of word culture. Hannie’s poetry interrogates history, lifestyles and the political moments. Her vivid imagery depicts cultural diversity, human excitements and stereotypes. In some instances, the poet is nostalgic of the peaceful past that was endowed with promise, hope and harmonious routine and as the present ridden with sorrow, laden with grief and disease infested. The poem AGAINST TIME is a prolific story told and written with the style of poetry. These lyrical dexterities presented in this versification qualifies Poet Hannie Rouweler into the Poetry Defenders Hall of Fame, already Rouweler is a staunch defender of poets, their rights and their writings. This submission is both in English and Dutch.TIME OF THE POET REPUBLIC is proud to be associated with dexterity , excellence and prowess in the personality of Internationally acclaimed poet , editor and publisher emeritus Hannie Rouweler-( Blurb by Mbizo CHIRASHA).

The World Museum of Poetry , the Piccolo Museo della Poesia Chiesa di San Cristoforo was recently launched in Piacenza,Italy.


The small Museum exists since 2014 thanks to the courage and determination of Massimo Silvotti, writer, poet, artist, philosopher: “ The contamination between the arts is very fascinating, it is no coincidence that we are also an exhibition space and often in our events we created a mixture of music, theater, cinema, dance and more. The Museum's mission is not exclusively conservative, on the contrary, we want to bring poetry back to the squares, to the people, so that they can re-appropriate it. Aim is to be the center of innovation and experimentation in arts; interacting with the smartest intelligences of the contemporary art world on international level and create a continuous laboratory for communication . Out in the center of the museum a work by the artist Antje Stehn, a monumental dress made of feathers (Xiao Bing's dress, homage to Pippa Bacca)which stands for the union between classical and contemporary art.
