The workshops will include the following participants, who will act as catalysts for discussion:
Mark Atkin, Sheffield XO Labs
Dr Joanna Boehnert, Research Fellow in Design
Clare Brass, Seed Foundation
Jamie Carr, International Union for Conservation of Nature
Dr Alice Eldridge, research fellow in digital performance, University of Sussex

Using data sonification, a way of using sound to make statistical information more accessible, you will be able to select climate data sets and turn them into sound, creating digital instruments within your own Climate Symphony.
The lab is led by Disobedient Films and includes an evening event. Curated by Forma, the evening event will feature live performances by sound artists Kate Carr and Lee Patterson who use field recordings in the composition of their work, often from environments in which climate change is taking effect.
Climate Symphony is devised by Disobedient in collaboration with Jamie Perera. Co-Produced by Forma Arts and Disobedient. Supported by Arts Council England and Sculpt the Future Foundation.
