Whatever the weather

10:30AM – 11:15AM

Thursday 26th November 2020

Weather is a constant thrum in our lives. It shapes how we feel, what we say, where we go, and what we do when we get there. Weather weaves through our memories, our sense of belonging and our imaginings. To consider how people engage in the natural world then, is to also consider how we live in weather. Our panellists share stories of how weather infiltrates their lives, intersecting with their involvement in art, medical practice, and research.
