That’s my new name for site specific literature projects. I’m very excited about a new project which Bad Language are part of (and I just can’t hide it!) The project is part of a wider collaboration called Northern Elements, funded by Arts Council England and ARC as part of a series of events.
Bad Language presents Northern Elements will see acclaimed writers Jenn Ashworth and Helen Mort working alongside Manchester Museum to create new work inspired by the current exhibitions. Their new commissions will be presented along side five chosen emerging writers on the evening of Wednesday 22nd October, in The Living World Gallery. This will be an evening of new writing themed around elements of the museum, be it about taxidermy, Mummies or how people engage with Museums around the world.
I’m wiggling with excitement for the new work that is being created and the Museum is a stunning setting for a spoken word event. Please see evidence below:
