A curated series of events across 4 key weekends. They position the artist as a kind of weather balloon, capturing ‘weather reports’ from this place and time.

About the World Weather Network

In response to the global climate emergency, Bundanon has joined 27 arts organisations across the world to form the World Weather Network, a ground-breaking constellation of ‘weather stations’ located across the world in oceans, deserts, mountains, farmland, rainforests, observatories, lighthouses and cities. Initiated by Artangel in the UK, the WWN brings together diverse world views and different ways of understanding the weather across multiple localities and languages.

For one year, artists and writers will share ‘weather reports’ in the form of observations, stories, images and imaginings about their local weather and our shared climate, creating an archipelago of voices and viewpoints on a new global platform.

Positioning the artist as a kind of weather balloon, Bundanon’s weather reports will include a dynamic program of talks, commissioned poems, interactive postcards, photographs and video works from this place and time.

Artists commissioned by Bundanon

Michelle Cahill, Fernando do Campo, Jacobus Capone, Carolyn Eskdale, Bianca Hester, Susan Jacobs, Holly Freidlander Liddicoat, Rebecca Mayo, SPM (Scott-Patrick Mitchell), Local Music, EvN (Ellen van Neerven), the Possum Skin Cloak Project, Erica Seccombe, Kate Scardifield, Kryton Stewart, Zan Wimberley, along with the Siteworks Capsule Talks.
