“The reason prisoners can create extraordinary art and poetry is because there is no lockdown in the imagination.” - Lemn Sissay
We're delighted to invite you to join us at our 2020 Anne Peaker lecture with keynote speaker Lemn Sissay, author, poet, and broadcaster.
Lemn’s critically acclaimed 2019 autobiography, My Name Is Why, reflects on his childhood, self-expression and Britishness, and explores the institutional care system, race, family and the meaning of home. Lemn will join us to talk about the role creativity can play for people at risk of being institutionalised and how people use creativity to exercise agency and shape their own destiny.
The event will also include performances, a Q&A and networking. Full programme details to follow.
