‘Made in Manchester’

After the success of Mother Tongue, Other Tongue, the MFL and English departments joined again to be involved in a unique poetry project called ‘Made in Manchester’, to further celebrate the multicultural and multilingual richness of our school and community. We identified 65 different languages spoken at Trinity, and called for budding multilingual poets to extend the poem that local poet Zahid Hussain had started. This resulted in 20 of our students being selected for the final piece, with the following languages: Japanese, Fulani, Swahili, Polish, Hindi, Twi, French, Arabic, Barawa, Dutch, Tagalog, Kmer, Zulu, Turkish, Somali and Russian. As well as the poem being turned, by local artist Emma Martin, into a fabulous art installation (currently in Central Library), our students were filmed saying their part of the poem, and you can access the fabulous final piece on:
