Abstract

A lively discussion about who we really are, navigating complexity in an unequal society, from the personal to the political. Lemn Sissay will launch our Centenary Festival by discussing his experience of growing up with a white foster family and in care in England in the 70s. The poet will address the different narratives that colour experience and the importance of developing your own narrative about who you are, of finding your voice.
