A Poetic Constitution for Scotland: Consultation

About A Poetic Constitution for Scotland: Consultation

If you, the citizens of Scotland, had the chance to write your own constitution, what would it say? How do we best express what it is to be Scottish/New Scottish today? Might the freedoms and fluidity of poetry offer a shared language for our civic values, ambitions, visions?

We invite all Scots and New Scots – living at home or abroad – to take part in our consultation to share and explore what Scotland means to you today. The collated responses will inspire and inform a new play, to be premiered in a special culmination of our festival hub on St Andrew’s Day, Monday 30 November.

Alongside the public consultation we are running three creative workshops, enabling specific groups to come together to explore their take on what it means to be Scottish/New Scottish.

13:00 - 14:30, 14 November: Under 25s Workshop
11:00 - 12:30, 15 November: New Scots Workshop
18:00 - 19:30, 18 November: Women-only Workshop

This event is presented by the College of Arts at the University of Glasgow as part of the Being Human festival, the UK’s only national festival of the humanities, taking place 12–22 November. Led by the School of Advanced Study, University of London, in partnership with the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the British Academy.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for A Poetic Constitution for Scotland: Consultation are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
