During finale gala of the 4th edition of the Georg Trakl All-Polish Poetry Contest, the results of this year’s contest will be revealed. The contest is organized in cooperation with the Foundation for the Promotion of Culture "Urwany Film." Every year, the contest receives more entries than from the year prior (this year – 190), and the high level of artistic achievement of the submitted works is further proof of its growing popularity.
The artistic component of the gala includes a poetry and music show "The Music of the Carpathians" which will be performed by Krzysztof Trebunia-Tutka and the Mountaineer band Śleboda. The narrative of the show is about the essence of being a mountaineer from the Carpathians, and is interwoven with music from different parts of Central and Eastern Europe.
Georg Trakl was an Austrian poet, who died on November 3rd, 1914, in a military hospital in Kraków. He is one of the most important representatives of Austrian expressionism.
This event is part of the DAYS OF AUSTRIA 2018, organized in cooperation between the Consulate General of Austria and the Galicia Jewish Museum.
