Heriot Toun in summer

Words for Spring 2021

Our Need for Art


We're so often told that art can't change anything.

But I think it can.

It shapes our ethical landscapes; it opens us up to the interior lives of others.

It is a training ground for possibility.

It makes plain inequalities and it offers other ways of living.


Olivia Laing
