Does language, dialect and accent matter when we are a county synonymous with diversity and multiculturalism?

We commissioned Lancashire artist, Matt Wilkinson to travel the length and breadth of Lancashire via public transport creating poetry inspired by the people he met and places he visited. His short film records and celebrates the voices and dialects of our great land.
