James Murray-White

James Murray-White
Name: James Murray-White
is a ClimateCultures Author

“I’m a writer and filmmaker, although my practice stretches back to theatre-making in the 1980s. Recent work has been in the areas of art & neuroscience (filmmaker in residence within the Cambridge University/NHS Dementia Research Network), applied anthropology in Mongolia and with the Bedouin of the Negev Desert, Israel, and the lives of poets, including a film about John Clare, and a new project exploring the mystic visions of William Blake.

My interest in linking art forms to dialogue around climate issues was catalysed by the TippingPoint Warwick conference in 2016, and subsequently I produced a weekend Festival of Change, here in Cambridge, with the NGO Pivotal (short film available on my Vimeo page).”
