We are beyond excited to share that ‘Hope’ (from our episode ‘Creature of the Sea‘) was selected for a commendation at the latest Climate Creatives Challenge #02!
The Climate Creatives Challenge is a design competition with the aim to support creative approaches toward communicating the impacts of climate change.
Challenge #02 focused on the theme of ‘Ecological Change’ and sought entries that respond to the question:
How can we communicate the impacts of climate change on a habitat and/or species and the benefits of mitigation, adaptation and resilience?
The challenge was open to all disciplines and creative backgrounds including designers, architects, filmmakers, writers, engineers, musicians, illustrators, ecologists and geographers.
We submitted the poem ‘Hope’ which was featured on our episode ‘Creature of the Sea’ and inspired by Kathi’s snorkelling artist residency at the Argyll Hope Spot.
‘Hope’ translates Kathi’s experiences of the abundant underwater world at this marine protected area into an immersive, thought-provoking audio poem about biodiversity, fragility and participation. The poem aims to connect listeners with a habitat that is normally out of sight and out of mind.
All four poems featured on ‘Creature of the Sea’ are the result of a creative collaboration between writer Kathi Kamleitner, musician Jen Austin and sound designer Fran Turauskis.
To hear ‘Hope’ listen to the episode ‘Creature of the Sea‘:
‘Hope’ is one of 20 commended entries. The judges comment said:
Wonderful, immersive, so moving. Brought a tear to my eye.
