A participatory web project proposing an intercultural dialogue through artistic responses. People around the world are invited to produce and upload their own audio-visual creations inspired by the Diwan poetry of Persian poet Hafez and German writer Goethe.
newdiwans.org is a contemporary interactive Diwan poetry bundle, in which you can discover which creations your work inspires, deepen yourself in the related contexts or simply enjoy the audio-visual poetry.
An artwork authored by everyone. As soon as you upload your creation, you will be part of this audio-visual intercultural dialogue.
It will grow and change as we grow and change, reflecting in a poetic mode how we perceive the relations between different cultures.
It will create an alternative space on internet, where ways of story telling and artistic production are experimented.
