Witnessing Climate Change

Tuesday 6th March @ Athenaeum Theatre, Melbourne

Witnessing Climate Change is part of The Wheeler Centre and WOMADelaide’s Planet Talks program.

Climate change is too often discussed in the abstract – in terms of graphs, statistics and future projections. Hear from people who are already seeing, and living, the impact. They’ll share their stories, visions and ideas for the future.

What does climate change look like today, across the globe? How is it affecting the daily lives of people, plants and animals? What are the obstacles – in political systems and in language – that hinder change and can we overcome them?

Words and performances from Marshall Islands spoken word artist Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner, activist Ursula Rakova from Papua New Guinea, New York Times science writer Jim Robbins and author and environmentalist Tony Birch. 

Thursday March 6 at the Athenaeum Theatre

Bookings via The Wheeler Centre.

Seminal Glaswegian rock heavyweights Mogwai announce their return to Australia, playing a Melbourne headline show in March.

The band’s latest release Every Country’s Sun takes two decades of Mogwai's signature, contrasting sounds – towering intensity, pastoral introspection, synth-rock minimalism, DNA-detonating volume – and distills it, beautifully, into 56 concise minutes of gracious elegance, hymnal trance-rock and transcendental euphoria.

Thursday 8th March @ Northcote Social Club, Northcote

Syrian-born, Los Angeles-based Azniv Korkejian, more widely known as BEDOUINE, will play her first ever Australian dates in March 2018.

Born in Aleppo to Armenian parents, Bedouine spent her childhood in Saudi Arabia, moving to America when she was eight years old. As a result, the sublime singer-songwriter creates music that has a nomadic heart, music that is sweeping and hypnotic, esoteric yet familiar. It’s sixties folk meets seventies country-funk with a glimmer of bossa nova cool.
