The Uxío Novoneyra Foundation, a cultural entity of state interest established in 2011, pursues the following objectives:
As a house of poetry, the Uxío Novoneyra Foundation supports unique projects such as the Ámeto Mítico travelling poetry residences on the Way of St. James. Among its activities is the Ith project, a virtual platform for collective financing of literary projects that aims to support a free and open community of readers. In addition, the foundation programs every August the Festival dos Eidos with a wide range of activities in poetry, music, film, dance, biological routes, among others.
The recovery and rehabilitation of the house where Uxío Novoneyra was born is a fundamental objective of this institution. We understand our foundational headquarters as a center of activation of the memory of the Serra do Courel through the poetic word. Its spaces in the process of recovery house a documentary archive, exhibition areas and a visitable vegetable garden.
The Uxío Novoneyra Foundation is part of the Association of Writers’ Houses-Museums and Foundations (ACAMFE).
We believe that poetry is a form of resistance and we follow as a guide Novoneyra’s verse, “E aínda é nova a terra!”, which inspires our actions as a cultural agent committed to a mountain that has been, for more than 70 years, a literary territory created by Uxío Novoneyra.
On the strength of his memory, word and thought, we are founded and work for a more just, free and solidary future from the local community with a global conscience.
