Global Warming Festival 2015: A new climate poem from Zia Ahmed

29 Nov 2015

A new film poem commission from Cape Farewell’s Climate Poet Zia Ahmed for 2015 – Riffing on the modern vogue of obscure band names, ‘Global Warming Festival’ imagines a darkly dystopian version of Glastonbury and takes inspiration from his time 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.
