The Warp & Weft is a multilingual archive of stories that seeks to capture the 2020 zeitgeist. It is oral storytelling drawn from diverse voices, languages and geographies, at a moment when the world came to a grinding halt. It goes beyond politics and explores the human family’s preoccupations and imaginaries. At a time of widening inequities exposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, racial capitalism’s failure to address human and environmental needs, but also global pushback against systems of oppression and violence, the Warp & Weft hopes to weave an alternative communal tapestry. The Warp & Weft is organized and curated by Mara Ahmed, with audio engineering by Anand Prakash and web design by Isabelle Bartter.
