Community Emergency

Community Emergency

Author: Delfina Maggio

“The world was plunged into uncertainty and chaos. The world powers had fallen one by one and the stability that had been maintained for decades, thanks to the diplomacy and the economic and military power of countries like the United States, China and Russia, had disappeared.
Citizens around the world were worried about what came next. The leaders who had maintained peace and security seemed unable to prevent the collapse. Countries’ economies began to falter and financial markets plummeted.
The crisis seemed to have no end. Many leaders tried to cope with the situation but their efforts were in vain. The international community was divided and mutual distrust plus national interests prevailed over cooperation and dialogue.
But in the midst of the darkness, there was also a light of hope. Citizens came together to face challenges together. Social movements and civil organizations began to work as a team and find solutions at the local and community level.” Delfina Maggio

 

Visual Poetry received for the International Call for Visual Poetry 2084 Imagined Futures (2023), whose slogan was: ‚ÄúImagine and send us your visual poetry creations from the future to our present. The time has come to occupy the future and allow your artistic vision to shape the world to come. Together we can transform dreams into reality.‚ÄĚ
The call was organized by Aura Poesía Visual (http://aurapoesiavisual.blogspot.com/?m=0). We thank Ana Verónica Suárez and OmarOmar.

Visual poetry is a form of experimental artistic expression that combines visual and verbal elements to transmit a message with the image predominating over the verbal. Unlike traditional poetry, words can appear superimposed, deformed or combined with images and graphic elements (typefaces, photographs, illustrations, etc.) to create a poetic experience that transcends written language and its literal meaning.

Note: given that some of the visual poems have been delivered without a title, from the editing area of 2084 Futures Imagined from the South, we decided to give them a possible title with the intention of equaling them to others, simultaneously helping to distinguish them.
