Young Identity: Ode on the Road at Manchester Jewish Museum, Cheetham Hill, 14 November 2018, from £5.00 - Book now

Young Identity are holding a special evening of spoken word and poetry as part of the Festival of Leaving which runs at the Manchester Jewish Museum in November.

Delivering dynamic poetry and creative workshops to eager writers aged between 13 and 25 years old, Young Identity is a spoken word collective which formed in Manchester in 2006. Regularly working with arts venues such as Contact and HOME, YI have worked with artists such as Lemn Sissay, international spoken word icon Saul Williams, dub poetry legend Linton Kwesi Johnson, Ted Hughes Prize Winner Kate Tempest and the late Amiri Baraka.

Young Identity: Ode on the Road will feature two brand new pieces, by Young Identity poets Billie Meredith and Ellie Otomewo, which have been specifically created for the festival. These particular commissions have been inspired by the theme of leaving which features heavily within the Museum’s collections. The evening will curate and connect historical stories of leaving, displacement and loss to the contemporary issues in our society.

During the evening there will also be speakeasy collective poets and band and an Open Mic Poetry session, open to anyone would like to read.
