International Poetry Poetry Festival
Identity crosses fences – Salafi without filter

The Sha’ar International Poetry Festival will address the subject of identity this year. Poets and poets from Israel and abroad will read, write and engage in fascinating dialogues with artists from different fields, and will break down and connect the elements of identity through fences and definitions of language, body, gender, real and virtual. The memory, the memory, the collective memory that is passed down from generation to generation, and the way in which poetry creates multiple voices and identities and turns fiction into truth and fiction.
