Following the launch of Linda France’s Dawn Chorus collective project, Linda will be joined by Kate Simpson to discuss how can poetry help us to make sense of the climate emergency? What is its role in transforming culture and society? Is the climate crisis a crisis of the imagination? Or a crisis of values? How might we begin again? 

Award-winning poet, Linda France is Climate Writer at New Writing North and Newcastle University, and Kate Simpson, is Editor of Out of Time: Poetry from the Climate Emergency, together they will discuss these questions and more in the run-up to COP26 in Glasgow. 

Captions will be provided for this event.
