Four schools in Manchester are working with the artist Emma Martin,

Students from Manchester School of Art have made Mushairas for the schools to write poetry.

This one is by Eloise Pierce.

Traditionally mushairas are poetry performances in South East Asian Languages. 

These mushaira will be ‘multi-language’ with poets asked to perform in their mother language or any language of their choice. As well as professional poets and special guests, school children and people from across Manchester will be performing poetry they have written in the build-up to the event.
