Online | Future exiles: climate change and migration


This panel explores the interconnected nature of climate change and migration and accompanies the current Citi exhibition, Arctic: culture and climate and the library of exile installation.

Panellists include indigenous Arctic writer, spoken word poet and curator, Taqralik Partridge; Shaul Bassi, Director of the International Center for the Humanities and Social Change at Ca'Foscari University of Venice; and James Thornton, an environmental lawyer and writer. The New Statesman named Thornton as one of 10 people who could change the world.

The event is the second in a series of thought-provoking discussions presented in collaboration with Edmund de Waal and the human rights organisation English PEN(Opens in new window), exploring the key themes of the library of exile.

This event will have live subtitles provided by Stagetext, delivered by MyClearText.
