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 “open 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 Cocentaina University Venue in order to share knowledge, experiences and culture.

From the UPUA creative writing workshops we would also like to join in the commemoration of 10 years of UPUA history, which coincides with the centenary of birth of Miguel Hernández, a universal poet. Lucky coincidence. Homage to the depth and beauty of the work of this poet from Orihuela and homage to an educational fact of great importance within the educational history in Alicante: the creation of the Permanent University for persons over 50 years.

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.

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:
