One Mic Stand

To round off a season of workshops with Young Identity in Manchester, they invited us to feature at their quarterly sell out  show 'One Mic Stand'.

It was amazing. Tolu Agbelusi, Kat Francois, Zena Edwards and Russenï Fisher represented the Home Is... poets to rave reviews from the audience. We were even interviewed by local press. Check out some of the performances from the night below. 

First Stop Manchester

We had a month long season of workshops with Young Identity, a prolific creative writing group based in Manchester, exploring the impact of emotional and physical displacement on how we build our concepts of home. The facilitators in order of delivery were Yomi Sode, Kat Francois, Zena Edwards and Tolu Agbelusi. 

Feedback from the sessions:

"Explored difficult themes but in a way that didn't feel intrusive or threatening"

"It was very personal, so I wrote about a lot I didn't think about ever"

"Some really deep discussions, everyone felt part of it"
