In this episode, musician and artist Natalie Sharp considers the importance of clean air and its interconnectedness with climate justice. We hear from Chisara Agor – a multi-disciplinary musician and sound artist from London whose work raises awareness of UK air pollution and the intersections of class, race and politics – who talks to climate justice activists Nyeisha Mallett and Elizabeth Jean Pierre of UPROSE in New York, an organisation that puts Black and Indigenous voices at the heart of the climate emergency. We also hear work by poet Daisy Lafarge, whose collection Life without Air ponders the fragility of air and its effect on both our psyche and the climate.
