Sign up to Hot Poets and cut through the climate change doom and despair!
Hot Poets is a brand new Arts Council England funded project run by Tongue Fu, writer and Fu founder, Chris Redmond and poet and participation artist Liv Torc.
The project aims to “bring poetry and science together to imagine a better possible future” by partnering spoken word artists with scientists, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), educators and change-makers working in the fight against climate change.
For the last month and leading up to the COP26 global climate talks at the end of October, 12 of the UK and Africa’s most exciting spoken word artists have been placed within climate change organisations including The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), the Met Office and wildlife charity the RSPB.
The result is 12 hopeful poems about remarkable climate change solutions, happening now, to help cut through the doom and despair – with a poem a day, filmed by Counterstate Films, released throughout the COP26 conference.
