Join us for Everything Change’s closing event, in which the current Poet Laureate of the United Kingdom, Simon Armitage, will be joined by Taylor Edmonds, the recently appointed Poet in Residence for the Future Generations Commissioner for Wales. Simon will read from his climate-related work and discuss the response of poets to the climate crisis, as well as his creation of The Laurel Prize for eco-poetry. He will then hand over to Taylor to introduce her new role — the first of its kind anywhere in the world — and close Everything Change with readings of her own poems, which imagine some tools to make our planet’s future a brighter one for all.

This event will be introduced and moderated by Owen Sheers, Professor in Creativity at Swansea University.

Booking is essential to access this free, online event. Live English-language captioning will be available.
