Many Voices - Sarah Short and Beatrice Lamwaka
Many Voices is Scottish PEN’s new project, aiming to offer new platforms for stories that are often excluded from the public conversation. Sarah Short is a Glasgow-based artist, specialising in writing for performance. In all of her work she aims to create space to feel human connection. As part of Many Voices, in partnership with Apex Scotland, Sarah has been working with a group of women based at HMP YOI Grampian, supporting them to creatively explore the stories that matter to them through spoken and written word. Beatrice Lamwaka is a Ugandan writer particularly interested in issues affecting women, including HIV/AIDS, the impact of war on women, and social justice. She was selected to join Sarah and the writing group as an international guest writer. Join us as we share the group’s writing with you, and Beatrice and Sarah read some of their own work and discuss their experiences working on this project.
