Weather in Translation, Time, Place, and Sound

A round table, featuring the creators of A Thousand Words for Weather, including writer Jessica J. Lee with poets Izdihar Alodhami, Leo Boix, Iris Colomb, Marta Dziurosz, Nikhat Hoque, Ayça Turkoglu and sound artist Claudia Molitor.

Reflecting on our ability to share experiences across languages and media, the translators will discuss the process and meaning of translation not just between languages, but also between artforms, focussing on word, sound and space. This panel will put the creative contributors of A Thousand Words for Weather in a lively, in-person exchange for the first time, offering a rare opportunity to delve into how each sought to reimagine the weather words for their own language or medium.

This event is a collaboration between Artangel & SAS and SHL, organised by Jessica J Lee on behalf of the organisations.
