The first step on the road to change is to imagine possibility.

In Imagine a Country, Val McDermid and Jo Sharp have asked almost 100 contributors to imagine their dream country. From comedians to economists, writers to musicians, they’ve gathered an astonishing array of Scottish voices to present their vision for the future.

In the special virtual Aye Write event, Val and Jo are joined by contributors Chris Brookmyre, Jackie Kay, Phil Jupitus, Stuart Cosgrove, Bill Sweeney and Louise Welsh, who each share their vision for a hopeful future.
