The role of the Poetry Committee has been to help us select the best poem from the huge collection of poems gathered over the last four years of AiA's programs around the world. The selected poem from each country will be featured in AiA's World Art Book which will be published in 2009. The poem had to adequately portray the country it was representing, and complement the artwork which would accompany it. It was very hard to choose 'the right' poem, so it was absolutely necessary to build a team of Permanent Poetry Advisers. Guidance from local people where the poems came from was also of utmost importance in the selection process.
The Fundacion Vicente Huidobro, in charge of promoting the work of the Chilean artist Vicente Huidobro has kindly given us support in the field of poetry, guiding us with their very valuable and extensive expertise in childrenâ€™s poetry The grandson of the poet Vicente Huidobro is also a member of our Board of Advisers.
