JEBEL MARRA - upcoming live events
LIVERPOOL - Tuesday 12th May, News From Nowhere bookshop
Following on from a beautiful launch at Manchester's Anthony Burgess Foundation, I'll be taking Jebel Marra to Liverpool for an event with aid specialist Róisín Read. We'll be talking about aid, corruption, and post-conflict storytelling, among other things, at the iconic News From Nowhere bookshop (long may she stand!) for the Writing on the Wall festival.
Entry to the event is £4/£2 at the door, and we start at 7.30pm
News From Nowhere, 96 Bold Street, Liverpool, L1 4HY
Find out more on the festival website.
More live events, including additional Manchester dates, to be posted here soon. You can order the book now via the Comma Press website.
WordPlay Community Arts
I'm thrilled to be able to announce the launch of a new participatory arts organisation that I've founded with my collaborator Harriet Morgan-Shami.
WordPlay has grown from work we've done in East Salford over the last seven years, and we will continue to root our work there, as well as taking some of the projects to the wider Greater Manchester area.
WordPlay uses creative writing and related arts (like digital storytelling, spoken word, artist books and life writing) to support attachment and wellbeing. We are especially focused on working with vulnerable and marginalised people, as this is the backbone of our previous work together.
You can follow WordPlay on facebook and twitter, and find out more on our website at www.wpca.co.uk
