Included in the itinerary of the biggest World Music festivals in Europe, the Festival MED is much more than music. In 2016, João Pedro Caliço “Tápê” created the literary project “Poesias do Mundo” (Poems of the World). This is a multi-ethnic, inclusive project based on the perspective of cultural promotion of poetry, offering visitors another distinctive ingredient.

Present at the Festival MED for several years (2016/17/18/19 and 2022), the “Poesias do Mundo” project had the pleasure and honour of hosting more than a hundred reciters (amateurs and professionals), representing more than 20 countries, who lovingly and passionately shared this art.

In 2023, the project returns to the space/Headquarters of Casa da Cultura de Loulé, on Rua 5 de Outubro (shopping street), where it will continue to be an area for sharing, inclusion and where the word, the book and the poetry are present.
