Poetry has the power to move, inspire and unite us. Poetry, out of all the literary genres, chooses the most beautiful ‘passage.’ Join us for a poetry reading that centres on this year’s UWRF theme Memayu Hayuning Bawana, the ancient Javanese philosophy that means the principles by which we care for, protect, and beautify our universe

Puisi memiliki kekuatan untuk menggerakkan, menginspirasi, dan menyatukan kita. Salah satu genre sastra yang memiliki bagian-bagian yang indah. Bergabunglah dengan kami untuk pembacaan puisi yang berpusat pada tema UWRF tahun ini Memayu Hayuning Bawana, filsafat Jawa kuno yang berarti prinsip-prinsip yang kami pegang erat, untuk melindungi dan memperindah alam semesta kita.
