Adopt A Nation

Brighton Festival Exclusive

'Meet me by the morning On the corner of night Where mist rises And hope’s in sight' Lemn Sissay

Adoption is as old as time. All cultures have been forming non-biological families as long as we’ve been making biological ones. Yet adoption can still be seen as something ‘other’.

In this powerful, reflective, one-on-one experience, Lemn Sissay invites you to adopt him and tell him something about ‘family’ that you think he should know. The conversation about adoption will ripple out from Brighton across the nation; around the world.

Please check back soon for more information about how to adopt Lemn.
