On the weekend of 22 -24 June Ricky Dragon and I, Predencia Dixon represented Writers Without Borders at the Solas Festival in Perth, Scotland. We were invited to perform by the UNESCO Chain in Refugee Integration through Languages and the Arts. It was my first festival and I was unprepared for the warmth of the other festival goers, the range of activities, the caliber of performances and the ‘buzz’. It helped enormously that the weather was so beautiful.
Our performances were very well received, so much so that we have both been invited to join the UNESCO group of artists. We will certainly remember Solas, and I think they will remember us. Looking forward to performing here again.
