Henry Bell is an award winning writer, poet and organiser living in Glasgow. His work – across poetry, theatre and nonfiction – explores questions of radical memory, community, and the revolutionary transformation of society.

His latest book – Red Threads: A History of the People’s Flag – charts the history of the red flag, how it travelled through the hands of French kings, Atlantic pirates, and liberated slaves to become the symbol of the workers against the propertied class.
