Paisley Book Festival Sunday 19th February 2.30pm. Glasgow. ‘Dream Ecologies’ – Natasha Thembiso Ruwona, Maria Sledmere, Nisha Ramayya, Lila Matsumoto.

How does dream logic, unrestrained by physical time and space, offer us a way to navigate our relationship with the natural world? In this event, the mythical and symbolic nature of dreamscapes come together with ecological writing from multiple perspectives and imaginaries. Dreaming, and the features of dreams, are explored as a way to uncover and process themes present in ecopoetry today.
