Robert Burns: A 21st Century Man

The Open University Event

In the year of the 250th anniversary of Robert Burn's birth, his life and work continue to resonate with contemporary artists, providing inspiration for new work, whether it be reflecting his life in the prism of contemporary society or using the style and motifs of his groundbreaking writing. Join poet Robert Crawford, photographer Andy Hall and author Donald Smith to discuss why the Bard is so important to us today and why he continues to strike a creative chord after all this time. Chaired by Brian Taylor.
