2014 NEWSLETTER

Here we are, our dear WAAC/WCP is completing 45 years old, working enthusiastically spreading its motto: “Peace and Love through Poetry”, now at the end of the 34 WCP held in the cities of Lima and Trujillo in the South American country of Peru from the 10th to the 14th of November 2014.

 

 

 

 

This WCP was attended by almost 150 poets from countries of the 5 five Continents and locals ones who shared their words in an atmosphere of enthusiasm and comprehension. The Opening Ceremony was held in the capital city of Peru, Lima, at “Los Incas” Auditorium at the Cultural Ministry, and it was inaugurated by the Minister of Culture Mrs. Diana Alvarez Calderón with our President Dr. Maurus Young; Dr. Marco Martos, 34 WCP President; Cultural Manager Dr. Mavi Márquez, 34 WCP Vice President accompanied by Dr. Ernesto Kahan, WAAC/WCP First Vice-President and Dr. María Eugenia Soberanis, WAAC/WCP General Secretary and 34 WCP International Vice President.

There was another Opening ceremony now at the city of Trujillo, also called “The eternal spring city”, famous for its important universities. The ceremony was chaired by 34 WCP Executive Board as well as those of WAAC/WCP, and by the Representant of Trujillo´s Mayor and by the District Municipality of Victor Larco´s Mayor Magister Carlos Vázquez Llamo who at the Closing Ceremony declared WAAC/WCP Patron Dr. Yu His and WAAC/WCP President Dr. Maurus Young  as “Distinguished Guests”.

The recitals and poetry readings held at the Santa Rosa School were such a success with a great audience waiting to greet each country delegation with its different flags, it was really moving. Some of the students also performed Marinera dance and read their own poems in a choral way and individually.

The recitals at the Talentos School were also a success with its students expecting our poems. Here we also were delighted by a special performance of Marinera, this typical dance, by two little kids with such a gracious and talented art.

We must also say about the public presentation of poets at the César Vallejo Plaza, very significant because he is the most renowned poet from Peru due to his modern and avant-garde poetry. People from the city of Trujillo could hear and share with poets from different countries in an interesting cultural interchange.

This Congress motto “Peace and love are eternal poetry” fulfilled its mission, as the poetic coexistence during these days was excellent. The Trujillo University supported this Congress and the Private University Antenor Orrego (OPAO) which also granted Medals and Diploma to Dr. Maurus Young and Mrs. Mavi Márquez.

During this event the Lima´s Declaration was subscribed by the arts and culture creators who considered their duty and responsibility to defend the last “world´s lung”: the Amazonia.
