Ideas for Images on a climate awareness t-shirt: a new poem by Zia Ahmed

29 Nov 2015

A new film poem commission from Cape Farewell’s Climate Poet Zia Ahmed for 2015 – this poem imagines a series of increasingly absurdist images for a climate change awareness campaign; but are the advertising agencies fiddling as Rome burns? Written during his post as poet in residence for Cape Farewell, spending time in and researching key sites across London vulnerable to climate change, including the Hermitage Community Moorings, Wapping and the Phytology Gardens, Bethnal Green.
