Weather Arts and Music (WAM)

Register an interest

The Weather, Arts and Music Special Interest Group was formed in 2012 following the first-ever Festival of Weather, Arts and Music on Jubilee Weekend in June 2012, at the Town Hall in Reading.

WAM seeks explore the possibilities inherent in bringing together such creative areas of activity as science and the arts, and bring meteorology and climate science to a wider public through the powerful communication tool that is the arts.
