The Elemental Summer

Earth, Wind, Water, Fire: Life in a Climate Emergency

The adaptation/mitigation/revolution required to navigate the brutal and ongoing climate emergency – our new abnormal – demands terrific change in terms of how we live, how we work, what we do.

To witness this changing world, Griffith Review has commissioned a powerful series of works from Australia’s leading scientists and writers to reflect the unpredictable news cycle of the coming seasons.

Joëlle Gergis, Tyson Yunkaporta, James Bradley, Jasmin McGaughey, Susan Harris Rimmer, Zoë Loh, Rebecca Giggs, Sarah Perkins-Kirkpatrick, Nicole Hasham and Bruce Pascoe.

Griffith Review thanks McLean Foundation for their support for this work.
