Pacific Island nations are in the midst of a climate change crisis. This edition of 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art’s Please Explain talk series takes Marshall Islander poet, performance artist, educator Kathy Jetñil-Kijiner’s address and poem “Dear Matafele Peinem”, presented at the 2014 Opening Ceremony of the UN Secretary-General’s Climate Summit as a starting point for discussion on the role artists and activists play in this major challenge facing our Pacific region. What stories are being told across our ocean, and what are we to lose if the crisis is not met with appropriate action? What is the role of art and policy here - what can we do?

Artists Paula Schaafhausen and more to be announced, exhibiting at UNSW and 4A Centre as part of Wansolwara: One Salt Water speak to this issue in this major Sydney Festival panel event moderated by Wesley Enoch.

Wansolwara: One Salt Water is presented in partnership with UNSW Galleries, and supported by Art Monthly Australasia, FBi Radio and Sydney Festival.
