Elten Kiene and Sjaan Flikweert chat about poetry, place and belonging with the people who helped them create Streets of Poetry for MINDSCAPES. Whilst creating their new projects, our MINDSCAPES commissioned artists worked with individuals and communities from across Manchester who have deep personal or professional knowledge of the relationship between mental health and the places they live.
Working with Young Identity, Elten and Sjaan created new poems with people who had experienced migration to Manchester and who live in Moston.
Elten & Sjaan chat with with Manchester-based poet Ella Otomewo, along with Moston & Hapurhey resident Mohammed Abdulkarim about their poems which will be based on the streets of Moston, Hapurhey and Manchester City Centre.
