Imagination as activism

If we want change, first we have to imagine it…

Hannah Lavery is a leading Scottish poet, playwright and performer. Appointed as Edinburgh Makar in 2021, her pamphlet Blood Salt Spring was shortlisted for the 2022 Saltire prize. She is an associate artist with the National Theatre of Scotland and one of the winners of the Peggy Ramsey/Film4 award 2022. Her work is widely published and staged; her choral poem/lyric play ‘For us girls of colour making half notes into song when the haar is all’ was presented this autumn at the Lyceum Theatre in Edinburgh.

The Naomi Mitchison Memorial Lecture is hosted annually by Scottish PEN and the Edwin Morgan Centre for Creative Writing at the University of Glasgow.
