Your weather is our weather
The world's weather is not what it used to be. We see glaciers melting and water levels rising. Some lands are being flooded and others are being parched. Temperatures are rising. Formed in response to the climate emergency, the World Weather Network is a constellation of 'weather stations' set up by 28 art organisations around the world as an invitation to look, listen, learn and act.
Artists, writers and communities share observations, stories, reflections and images about their local weather, creating an archipelago of voices and viewpoints. Engaging climate scientists and environmentalists, the World Weather Network brings together diverse world views and different ways of understanding the weather across multiple localities and languages. Every weather station will publish weather reports throughout the year. These reports take many different forms: poetry, fiction, reportage, video diaries, films, photography, podcasts, and more. Each report will be shared as a digital artwork via the World Weather Network online platform: worldweathernetwork.org.
Waag Futurelab's Creative Officer Gary Carter acts as Chairperson of the World Weather Network steering group.
