All ages welcome
Manchester Poetry Library
Language is more than just communication. Language connects individuals and communities, builds relationship across time and space, contributes to who we are and how we understand the world around us. It is for this reason that we want to develop a manifesto display that reflects language as a right. And we are keen to hear your thoughts as we celebrate International Mother Language Day.
Join us in the Manchester Poetry Library for a family fun session that aims to build a language manifesto with children and families. This is an engaging and creative activity for the whole family. This session will be lead by Dr Khawla Badwan.
After the session stay for our drop in Family Open Mic. We can help you find poems to read from our collection or you read poems you have written yourselves! We welcome poems in any language and readers of all ages.
