The event saw the attendance of 20 foreign poets from 14 countries, including Jack Hirschman from the US, Richard Burns from the University of Cambridge, as well as Michael March from Czech, etc. In addition, roughly 20 Chinese poets were present at the event.
That afternoon, the poets visited local famous cultural and historical attractions including the Wide and Narrow Alleys, where they appreciated wonderful folk performances involving Chengdu tea art and Sichuan Opera's stunt face changing. In the cottage museum, they exchanged views on poetry writing and communication in the context of globalization. On the evening, 16 foreign and Chinese poets recited their own representative works.
"Chengdu is full of a poetic atmosphere and in ancient times many poets, including Du Fu, created classic verses here. It also has a time-honored history of over 3,000 years. I will go to the Jinsha Site Musem to explore the city's splendid culture," said Dominique Christina, an American poet.
