Event Details

Climate literacy must address not only the signs of climate change, but also the issues of
climate injustice. Knowledge concerning climate change should be available to all and not a
selected few.
I cannot overemphasize enough the power of visual storytelling. Not long ago, I told my climate
story and called it WHITE TRASH. If you could tell your climate story, how would you tell it, what
would you call it and why?

Adelle A'asante

Show bio +Adelle A'asante is an Optometrist by profession and a raconteur by birth. Like most children raised in Africa, she grew up with stories all around her but perhaps a lot more, coming from a lineage of storytellers, who believe the human story should be central to our understanding of the world. Inspired by her own lived experience as a migrant and a community reporter, she is deeply motivated to use the sacred art of storytelling, particularly the human lived and living experience story in bringing identity, presence and representation into space, for a more nuanced approach to dialoguing, problem solving and as a tool for social change. Adelle is also founder of the EnT Foundation; a social enterprise whose mission is to use diverse forms of creativity to promote social cohesion under whose umbrella she gathers and curates extraordinary stories by unpopular voices for its monthly photo exhibition; Africaniwa.
