A Manifesto in Verse

Details

LEEDS WAS ONE OF SEVEN CITIES SELECTED FOR THE GOVERNMENT CENTENARY CITIES PROJECT, WHICH CELEBRATES 100 YEARS SINCE WOMEN GOT THE RIGHT TO VOTE.

A “Manifesto in Verse” will be an immersive exhibition for the viewer, using the latest technology. Inspired by Leeds Libraries unique collections a group of young people created collections of visual content, poems and sound which were captured through film, photography and transformed into virtual reality. The exhibition will inspire others to share their views by comparing the voices and sense of belonging in the city, reflecting on the historical sense of fear provoked by the fight for suffrage and providing room to explore all of these issues. Showcased through May in Room 700 to coincide with an exhibition by Chris Nickson ‘Vote before the Vote’. The project will continue for one year working with different Leeds communities and Khadijah Ibrahiim (activist, poet, and theatre maker) to produce exciting new writing and create visuals on topics linked to suffrage.

The project is produced byStudio12 a digital media initiative run by Leeds Central Library that invests in the creative talents of young people living in Leeds and surrounding areas. Studio12 strives to provide young people with a creative process to educate, engage and include young people in producing new work. It provides free access to a production studio, training and an industry panel of creative professionals.
