Budge Johnstone, Ama Josephine

Ama Josephine Budge Johnstone is a British-Ghanaian speculative writer, artist, scholar and pleasure activist whose praxis navigates that which she has termed «Intimate Ecologies» to explore Blackness, aesthetics and queer, pleasurable, interspecies futures. Ama is an Associate Lecturer at Central Saint Martins (University of the Arts London), an MFA tutor at the Sandberg Institute (Amsterdam), and a Research Associate at VIAD (University of Johannesburg). Ama’s wider intra-disciplinary work thinks through sustainable ecologies of care and more-than-survival for BIPoC women and queer folk in the arts and academia. Ama’s writing was shortlisted for the 2023 Future Worlds Prize, she has had essays, short fiction and art writing published internationally, and has been exhibited across Europe.
