The Complete Works – Introduction

Ellah Wakatama, OBE, is leading a new annual series of literature events called The Complete Works, from HOME and The University of Manchester.

Here she introduces the project.

The Complete Works is the next phase of collaboration between HOME’s programming teams and University academics, which to date have spanned theatre, visual art and film and will now explore international, experimental and political themes in conversations with some of the most exciting contemporary writers working today.

Year 1 of the series launched in September 2019 with a line-up of journalists and authors whose work encapsulates and has strong resonance with the powerful theme of Hope & Resistance.
