Organizing Committee of "Dialogue Among Civilizations through Poetry" (Hong Kong)

2001 has been designated as the "International Year of Dialogue Among Civilizations" by the United Nations (UN). As one of the major events to mark this year, the UN organized a poetry readings programme - a city-based event featuring the participation of more than 100 cities or towns all over the world. The Centre for Translation accepted the invitation of the Organizing Committee of "Dialogue Among Civilizations through Poetry" (Hong Kong) to be one of the sponsors of the poetry readings programme which was held in Hong Kong in March 2001. The Centre also organized the translation of the selected works of local Chinese poets into English. A total of about 120 poems are involved.
