You are invited to join the multi-award-winning, Manchester-based live literature team Bad Language and the artist Naho Matsuda to a workshop offering an insight into the unusual methods Naho undertook to create the live poetry for every thing every time.

The poetry for every thing every time is created by a computer programme that interacts in real-time with information created and collected by CityVerve from the city of Manchester. The artist Naho Matsuda created this programme, giving it a set of rules for shaping and presenting each line of the never ending and ever changing poem. Participants of the workshop will produce poetry utilising similar techniques to Naho, whilst creating unique pieces of literature.

  • The workshop will start promptly at 2 pm.
  • Accessible for wheelchair users
  • You will be required to bring your own laptop for the workshop but paper, pens and refreshments will be provided. A limited number of laptops will be available to borrow but you must email us in advance to secure this.
  • For more information please contact or 0161 232 4600

every thing every time is created by Naho Matsuda. Commissioned by CityVerve in partnership with FutureEverything. Supported with public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
