What does it mean to be northern?

“How did we get here, eh? We’re surprised to find ourselves on the brink of a seismic shift in our national identity but how did we get to this? When did we stop talking to each other? Let’s start talking now.
If you’re connected to the North we want to start a conversation with you, wherever you land on the political spectrum, wherever in the world you find yourself now. We might not always see eye to eye, but we all care about this land and where we’re heading. Backbone of our Land explores what it means to be part of the landscape, finding out who we are through conversation and connections.”
Led by Peter Brewis and Degna Stone, Backbone of our Land is a premiere Folkworks commission of new music and spoken word features exciting artists including Bella Hardy, Sarah Hayes, Andrew McMillan and Kim Moore. 
We want you to be part of this project and share your ideas on what it means to be Northern, why we live here and why we stay here.
Join the conversation and let us know what you think about the North, being Northern and being connected to this land.
