Building on frameworks of Black feminist pleasure, science fiction, ecological evolutions, and queer tantra training, Breathe. Speculate. Come. incorporates breath, free writing, mark-making and pleasure vocalisations to rest, resist, reimagine and rebuild.
Led by Ama Josephine Budge, the closed session will centre queer, POC and Black gender non-conforming, non-binary, trans and femme people to harness pleasure experienced through their bodies, their erotic energies and their relationships to the earth in order to imagine embodied healing through breath and fuller, more pleasured and more connected lives.
This workshop forms part of The Politics of Pleasure Family Reunion
, an all-day event for Black women to explore pleasure as generative of creativity and community, and as fundamentally linked to their humanity.
Ama Josephine Budge is a writer, artist, curator and pleasure activist whose work navigates intimate explorations of race, art, ecology and feminism to activate movements that catalyse human rights, environmental revolutions and queered identities. She is convenor of the anti-conference I/Mages of Tomorrow, co-founder of queer Black collective The Batty Mama and initiator of pleasure collective Self Love and Ecstasy. Budge has been published across news platforms, art journals and feminist periodicals, and is a PhD candidate in Psychosocial Studies with Dr Gail Lewis at Birkbeck, University of London.
