A Statement on Hurricane Irma

6 September 2017

As Hurricane Irma makes its way up the Caribbean archipelago, with such devastating effect, we in the Small Axe Project wish to extend our thoughts to all those in the region who have already been affected, and to urge those in its path to do everything possible to protect themselves, their families, their friends and neighbors, their communities, from harm and injury. And as we (intellectuals and artists) contemplate its wake—in conjunction with the wakes before and the wakes to come—let us seek, more receptively, more boldly, to think the implications of the eco-poetics of catastrophe that constitute our Caribbean worlds.
