Within the framework of the 10th anniversary of the Permanent University, which is celebrated in 2009-2010, we aspire to achieve some of the essential aims that have been leading the programme from its very beginning, “creating a university open to all the ages” and “opening us to the whole citizenship”, not depending on their place of residence. With this spirit and the active participation of the UPUA students we are approaching the Secondary School "Cabo de la Huerta" in order to share knowledge, experiences and culture. This 10th anniversary of the UPUA  coincides with the centenary of birth of a universal poet: Miguel Hernández. Lucky coincidence.

Poetry and knowledge. Artistic creation and educational creation. Another great Spanish poet, J. Ramón Jiménez said that poetry corresponds to a triple thirst: thirst for knowledge, thirst for beauty and thirst for eternity. For the poet, eternity was a synonym of temporal permanence. Perhaps poetry is a one of the deepest and most beautiful forms of knowledge. Miguel Hernández fought with his work and his life for the rights of liberty to create, to think, to know, to be, to exist in peace, for all citizens. Emotional homage to an extraordinary poet and citizen.

This recital is of intergenerational character, a concept which represents another challenge: to bring young students of secondary education and senior students of the Permanent University of the University of Alicante closer together, in order to get to know, discover and respect the values and experiences of both of these groups. Two human groups interested in knowledge at very different stages of their lives. This is an example of how the philosophy of life should be in modern societies, made up by active citizens in a continuous learning process, which guarantees the development and progress of the human race. 

The UPUA writing workshops join in these celebrations, due to our love for poetry, with the recital for which we have been preparing at a high level. We invite you to join us in this literary activity and to feel the emotion before the poetic creation, so that the following definition from another universal poet, Antonio Machado, can be fulfilled:
