Young Identity presents

Young Identity: Working from HOME

HOME’s resident artists Young Identity launch their brand-new poetry collection with this amazing retrospective of the work they have produced over the first five years of HOME.

Words written and spoken move into the realms of heaven and hell.
Life is complicated and so are the stories we tell and retell.

Young Identity have a long history of delivering dynamic poetry and spoken word workshops and performances for young people at HOME, Contact and at events across Manchester and across the globe.

At this one-off special event they will launch their new book of poetry with performances from members of the group.

An amazing retrospective of the work they have produced over the first five years of HOME, the book showcases Young Identity’s creative responses to work performed at HOME across all three of our artforms – theatre, film and visual arts.

This new poetry collection comes from the heart of HOME, from the work seen in the building, and from the hearts of some of the finest emceeing poets in Manchester.
