Did you know Scots is a dialect of Scotland? With a revitalisation of the language underway, podcast host and poet Lisa Kennedy delivers an original composition in Scots on the theme 'What Now?'. Lisa Kennedy is a dance artist/choreographer and founder of the 1940/50s inspired dance troupe, The Kennedy Cupcakes.

In 2019 Lisa established The Braw and The Brave, a podcast about people and their passions. From artists to dancers, world travellers to conservationists.

Lisa enjoys writing and in recent years has dabbled in poetry, using Scots to convey her thoughts on topics such as kindness, imposter syndrome and the mother tongue itself! Lisa is ever inquisitive and enjoys encouraging others to share ideas and tap into their creative self. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
