Rescripting the Mainstream: Len Pennie and Sarah Grant

Saturday 27 April, 2024

Join us for a conversation about the challenges of being in the public eye, as we welcome two multimedia artists who’ve staked their claim in the Scottish cultural landscape. TikTok sensation and Scots language champion Len Pennie took social media by storm during the pandemic with her Scots Word of the Day, and has now launched her debut poetry collection Poyums, which moves deftly between English and Scots to advocate fiercely for issues she cares about. Sarah Grant is a writer, director and performer based in Glasgow, who is committed to creating body positive, sex positive and inclusive female-led stories, and whose latest book, Fat Girl Best Friend, dives into the treatment of plus size women on screen.
Join the conversation as these writers discuss stereotypes, marginalised identities, the importance of visibility, and imagining something different from the mainstream in conversation with actor, writer and producer Louise Oliver.
