Sophie Sparham – Dead Air: If they won't place us in the history books, we'll write our own stories

Sometimes you just don't know where a poet might appear… Sophie will perform a selection of works in three different places in the city centre. Her work is a voice for the people whose revolutions have been forgotten. She will perform spoken word pieces about history's hidden heroes in places around Derby that aren't typically arts spaces. She will give out factual zines so you can find out about these great people. The artist hopes people come away feeling inspired  to make positive change happen.
