Kirsty Gbasai is helping to spin a yarn across Greater Manchester communities.

Forever Manchester recently chatted with Kirsty Gbasai about life and the fantastic community poem “Yarn”. You can enjoy and get involved here.

YARN is a crowd-sourced interactive poem curated by local community artist Kirsty Gbasai. The concept is to bring together people from across Greater Manchester, to become united in writing a poem to document the current creativity of local residents and to generate a unique piece of written creative art.

It is being constructed one sentence at a time, with each contributor generating a sentence inspired by the previous sentence to involve lots of people from all walks of life in the creation of something quite unique and special!
