Listen to a recording of an event held at Free Word which explored how poets and spoken word artists can help to create change through their writing and performance, contributing to the debate around climate change.

Last week Free Word and Apples and Snakes welcomed Polish writer and activist Jaś Kapela to London for an event which explored how poets and spoken word artists can help to create change through their writing and performance, contributing to the debate around climate change and raising awareness and understanding through art as activism. It showcased the talents of poets who are inspired to write and perform about one of the biggest and most complex issues of our time, with Jaś Kapela – Weather Stations artist in residence at Krytyka Polityczna in Warsaw – who was joined by British-based poets Inua Ellams and Victoria-Anne Bulley.

This event is part of 'Weather Stations', a project made possible with the support of the Culture Programme of the European Union.
