Campbell McGrath, John Stuart and Martin Solotruk at MBUS in Miami

Early this February, Martin Solotruk took an invited research trip to Florida International University, and its MBUS Center, to explore possibilities of cooperation between Ars Poetica International poetry festival, based in Bratislava, Slovakia and feasible counterparts in the Miami area. The visit was a highly inspiring enterprise, as it enabled Mr. Solotruk having the privilege of holding meetings and a wide range of discussions with leading experts and artists of the US, including prof. Campbell McGrath (left), prof. John Stuart (centre), as well as prof. Ana Menendez, and other personalities. The journey was made possible thanks to support of Sovereign Invest Foundation and the Slovak Arts Council, using public funding.
