Bolu Babalola (Love is Blind) takes the most beautiful love stories from history and mythology and rewrites them with incredible new detail and vivacity. She reimagines iconic Greek myths, ancient legends from the Middle East, and stories from countries that no longer exist in our world. She speaks with Florence Given, artist, activist and author of best-selling Women Don’t Owe You Pretty about challenging outdated narratives and decolonising tropes of love to create new stories from the wildly beautiful tales that already exist in so many communities and cultures. Chaired by Abigail Bergstrom.
