‘A Wake: On mourning, marking, and moving forward together with joy’

In September 2020 I was invited read my work at a community mourning and healing event for Scottish disabled artists.

I read 4 poems, ‘Void’, ‘Citadel of Truth’, ‘The Finished Den’ and ‘Beloved Black’. 

Captioned and BSL translated video poetry reading.

‘A Wake’ was curated by San Alland, and supported by Birds of Paradise Theatre as part of San’s work for the Freelance Task Force.

‘Beloved Black’ was created for a public art commission from the Black Lives Matter Mural Trail Scotland.
