Nicola Davies

Planet Assembly: Choose Love

Hay Festival 2023, 

How would it feel being forced to leave your home? What circumstances would lead you to that decision? And what can be done to help those who have had to flee their lives and make a new start? As part of our Planet Assembly series, which aims to empower people to understand and act upon new knowledge, poet Nicola Davies will discuss the stories and experiences of real-life refugees who inspired the poems in her collection Choose Love, beautifully illustrated by Petr Horáček.

Teaching materials for this event can be found here

Sut byddai’n teimlo i gael eich gorfodi i adael eich cartref? Pa amgylchiadau fyddai’n eich arwain chi at y penderfyniad hwnnw? A beth y gellir ei wneud i helpu’r rhai sydd wedi gorfod ffoi o’u bywydau a dechrau o’r newydd? Fel rhan o’n cyfres Planet Assembly, sy’n ceisio grymuso pobl i ddeall a gweithredu ar wybodaeth newydd, bydd y bardd Nicola Davies yn trafod straeon a phrofiadau ffoaduriaid go iawn a ysbrydolodd y cerddi yn ei chasgliad Choose Love, gyda darluniadau hyfryd gan Petr Horáček.
