So I’m going to a climate conference in Stockholm on Monday (22nd April) and joining a panel of artists talking about how they use their art to communicate climate change. I’ll be throwing out a few half-baked observations and wondering whether my inability to formulate complete sentences in English and my inevitable brain freeze halfway through a word is due to the fact that:
- I’ve been living in Germany for such a long time and automatically internationalise/dumb down anything I’m saying
- I only started taking vitamin B12 supplements six years after becoming a vegan and a lack of B12 causes memory loss
- I was always terrified of public speaking and this fear manifests itself as a kind of mental stammer
- All of the above.
Should be fun, anyway. Lots of time to read on those 18 trains to Sweden.
