Their goal is to put an end to creative poverty and work towards more diversity and inclusion in the sector.
Hard hitting messages
Manchester Street Poem is a charity working with the City’s marginalised communities – helping them to mitigate their lived experiences of homelessness, mental health and other scenarios often leading to social isolation.
Through workshops and thought provoking art installations the initiative gives its members a voice, while delivering hard-hitting messages to society.
High profile works include the Manchester International Festival (MIF), Media City’s ‘Box on the Docks’ and, most recently, an emotive storytelling compilation for Amal, the giant Syrian girl puppet, during her tour of the North West.
