Art teams from each country of the project partnership took part in the workshops (Creative Labs) presenting and exchanging experiences and inspiring formats on creative and innovative approaches to the presentation of poetry. Each of the artistic teams developed and presented the workshops in a different way. In addition to the presentation of the characters and work of poets from each country and the exchange of experiences related to the presentation of poetry, inspiring workshops were prepared including vocal and breathing workshops, theater workshops, photographic and interpretative workshops and the others. The aim of these meeting was to start working on the methodology of poetry presentation, which will be used in the next modules of the project.
