Climate change is not just a question of science – it is a question of living. Our society has barely begun to understand the scale of the challenges we must face: and to cope, we will need to find new insights through creativity and imagination.
For the past year, Free Word has been asking writers to confront climate change with creativity: Last Spring we launched Weather Stations, a global project working with writers and young people to produce inspirational responses to this worldwide emergency.
In June we hosted TippingPoint’s two-day Weatherfronts symposium, which brought together a wide pool of writers and scientific experts to explore the nature and future of our changing climate, exchange ideas and stimulate new creative work.
With these projects beginning to come to fruition, we’re delighted to invite you to a stimulating and unexpected evening of brand new work created by writers from Weatherfronts and Weather Stations, confronting the greatest challenge of our time.
Writers sharing their work from Weatherfronts will include Sarah Butler, Nick Hunt, Stevie Ronnie, Dan Simpson, and a group of three activist writers, all with a deep commitment to social and climate justice, consisting of Sai Murray, Selina Nwulu and Zena Edwards. From Weather Stations, we will be joined by one of Ireland’s leading writers, Oisin McGann, the Weather Stations writer in residence for Tallaght Community Arts.
