MANCHESTER STREET POEM
Street Poem is a growing collection of stories from people who have first hand experience of what it means to be homeless.
The first iteration of Street Poem found a home in the Manchester International Festival as a performed installation and soundscape. The project brought together the group Underworld and various members of the Manchester Homelessness Partnership. Together they created an environment greater than the sum of its parts, and each individual was changed as they journeyed together.
This co-production team is excited to share with you what we did, and what we continue to do as we gather more stories to shape the connections we make with each other.
This film was part of our 6 month campaign for Manchester International Festival.
