Weather Stations is a groundbreaking global project that puts storytelling at the heart of conversations around climate change – and the Wheeler Centre is one of five international partners.

It all starts this week, with Australian writer Tony Birch joining Xiaolu Guo (UK) (pictured above), Mirko Bonné (Germany), Jaś Kapela (Poland) and Oisín McGann (Ireland) for a three-week Australian residency in which they’ll explore, research and discuss the question of our threatened environment – and attempt to break through the politics and public inertia by responding to it creatively in their writing.
