Smashing Times International Centre for the Arts and Equality are delighted to announce a new initiative by our patron, Sabina Coyne Higgins – an online collection of anti-war poetry.
At a time when conflicts and war are part of everyday life for communities across the world, it is important to stand up and speak out for peace. From July of 2022, Smashing Times facilitated an open call for poetry of any length that linked with the theme of anti-war or pro-peace. Smashing Times have now collated these submissions into an online collection that is accessible to all. This collection serves as a reminder that Ireland’s long cultural history of poetry and storytelling is still a key element of our culture today, and as a spotlight on poets using their art form to promote human rights.
