Panellists (confirmed so far)
Moderator: Madeleine Black
Madeleine Black is a Glasgow based author and public speaker who hopes that sharing her story will help other victims of sexual violence and crime. After many years of keeping quiet, Madeleine Black decided in September 2014, to share her story on The Forgiveness Project’s website and she completely underestimated what the response would be. She has taken part in a film interview for a documentary about rape and the anonymity laws, which will be shown on Dispatches, Channel 4 and has been interviewed for STV News. In December 2015 she gave her first public talk at a Festival of Light at the University of Keele. The theme was “Making Peace with the Enemy”. From that night she was asked to give three more talks on the same theme and has spoken at many other events too. She has been interviewed by Dan Walker on BBC Radio 5 Live and talked about Forgiveness and Health, which led to interviews with Stephen Jardine on BBC Radio Scotland sharing her story and most recently with Sir Trevor McDonald on BBC Radio 4 talking about Redemption.

Sadie Jemmett’s extraordinary songs reflect a remarkable life. From a wildly bohemian childhood through being a teenage runaway, a backing singer in a reggae band and a touring actress, to her role today as one of the most magical and original singer-songwriters to excite our ears in many years.Her third studio album, Phoenix, will be released early summer 2019 and was recorded over two weeks at Baker Studios on Vancouver Island, BC, by Cowboy Junkies and Waylin’ Jennys’ producer, Joby Baker. The album also includes the single Don’t Silence Me, written for her friend, and actress, Mhairi Morrison, who was sexually assaulted at the beginning of her career in Paris, by an extremely influential film director. Sadie’s debut album The Blacksmiths Girl was produced in LA by Grammy-nominated David Bianco (Johnny Cash, Red Hot Chili Peppers) and released in 2011 on folk legend Judy Collins’ label Wildflower Records. Sadie recorded part of her second album, London Love Songs, at the legendary Abbey Road Studio 2, it was released, again, to critical acclaim. Sadie also contributed to a worldwide release, Music Is Love; (a singer-songwriter’s tribute to the music of Crosby Stills Nash and Young) alongside artists such as Judy Collins and Irish singer Liam O Maonlai from The Hot House Flowers. Her cover of Graham Nash’s Teach Your Children, which appears on the album, received excellent press and radio play both in the UK, Europe and America.
