At this event we'll share experiences of being Black, Mixed and Scottish. We can blether about race in Scotland, heritage, identity, colourism – the unsaid truth, different cultural milieux, our relationships with our ‘other homes’ or mental health. Performances from young Edinburgh-based artists/poets/creatives will be used as a springboard for all the themes explored.
Accessibility – please contact the organisers or the venue, Scottish Poetry Library, for more details: https://www.scottishpoetrylibrary.org.uk/accessibility/
