The Winnipeg: The Poem that Crossed the Atlantic consists of a website with information
about these interdisciplinary research project and the poetic space of “The Poem that
Crossed the Atlantic”; an interactive, multilinguistic transatlantic sea of stories fed by the
uploaded posts gathered in the website. The main inspiration has been a personal story
rooted in historical events of the Spanish Civil War and the Spanish and Chilean Historical
Memory, due to the involvement of the Chilean poet Pablo Neruda in the evacuation and
rescue of 2,200 Spanish civil war exiles from French concentration camps. The author
worked with Alexandre Dupuis-Belin as creative programmer.
