Multilingual Poetry

The Slanguages project worked with Amerah Saleh and Bohdan Piasecki, poets from Free Radical based in Birmingham, on a multilingual poem entitled My Mother is Crying.

The collaboration aimed to explore identities, the telling of human stories, and how art and multi-languages together can create shared moments of understanding and feeling between the performing poet and his or her audience.

Watch the poem performed at our Creative Multilingual Identities Conference in 2018 below, or learn more about the project (and read the full poem) on our blog.
