The Other Room Presents The Other Room
Tom Jenks, James Davies and Scott Thurston
The Midsummer Poetry Festival
Bank Street Arts
Sunday 15th June, 3:30pm
Here is some information on the event:
The Other Room is a long running poetry night based in Manchester which focuses on experimental poetry. Over the last six years it has presented a diverse range of performers of national and international repute as well as showcasing vital emerging talent. It also boasts an amazing website of resources including regular news about poetry from around the globe as well as hosting a belt bursting archive of recordings and interviews. In this event The Other Room’s three organisers – James Davies, Tom Jenks and Scott Thurston – perform their work together for the first time. This unique event is a fantastic opportunity to get a taste of The Other Room.

I'm doing a talk at this event.
PechaKucha Vol 11: TIME, to coincide with the close of the ambitious exhibition by Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos 'Time Machine'. This event takes place at Manchester Art Gallery on 29th May 7.00-8.30 and is free to attend. 20 images x 20 seconds.
The main focus will most likely be on my ongoing project IF THE DIE ROLLS 5 THEN I STAMP THE DATE which involves using a six sided dice, which has the number 5 on each side, as an aid to writing a diary.

After over a dozen incarnations of Camarade, involving over 150 poets, this is a chance to view a range of collaborative poetry works and then hear the most exciting contemporary poetry in collaboration as part of the Enemies experience.
