The Colour Green: Ama Josephine Budge
The Colour Green is a new podcast from Julie’s Bicycle exploring the links between climate change, race, nature and social justice from the perspectives of people of colour in the UK.
In The Colour Green podcasts, Baroness Lola Young is in conversation with artists and activists of colour who are at the forefront of social innovation – connecting climate justice, race, power and inequality.
In this episode we meet Ama Josephine Budge, a Speculative Writer, Artist, Curator and Pleasure Activist. Ama is a convener of I/Mages of Tomorrow anti-conference, co-founder of The Batty Mama, and a PhD candidate in climate change & pleasure practices in Sub-Saharan Africa. Ama chose Hampstead Heath in North London for her walk, taking us on a journey through a childhood split between London, Cornwall and Accra.
Listen to the episode with Ama:
Ama will also be co-convening a conference on rest, resistance and pleasure activism at Birkbeck University this October, called The Art of Not Doing.
Thank you to Ama and Lola for their time and generosity.
