International Poetry Festival - Culture And Arts Medellín - Colombia

From its inception in 1991 against a backdrop of extreme violence, the Medellín international poetry festival has grown from a small event to a national phenomenon. Poets from all over the world participate in readings at Medellín’s theaters and parks. The festival takes place every July and is worth checking out. Especially worthwhile is the opening ceremony, held every year in the theater on the Cerro Nutibara.
