She is one of the signatories to a letter criticising an earlier letter signed by several artists (including Miriam Margolys/Prof Sprout and Liam Cunningham/Davos Seaworth!) calling for a cultural boycott of Israel over its occupation of Palestine, as part of the worldwide Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement.
The letter states: "Cultural boycotts singling out Israel are divisive and discriminatory, and will not further peace. Open dialogue and interaction promote greater understanding and mutual acceptance, and it is through such understanding and acceptance that movement can be made towards a resolution of the conflict."
"Cultural engagement builds bridges, nurtures freedom and positive movement for change. We wholly endorse encouraging such a powerful tool for change rather than boycotting its use."
Two-time Booker Prize winning novelist, Hilary Mantel is also among the signatories to this letter.
