In 2014 Scotland was asked if it wanted to be an independent nation.
The question did much more than produce a Yes or No, it led to a political and cultural awakening.

Almost a year later, artists and writers reflect on what happened in poems, stories and images.
Butterfly Rammy is a book to accompany the cabaret of the same name hosted by Common Weal during the 2015 Edinburgh Festival. Below, you will find details of each artist and writer who contributed to the project.
