Radio Interview: Zahidah highlights the MFTW’s participation at the upcoming Smithsonian Folklife Festival.

Please listen to this important and informative interview here: The Sustainable Hour Apple podcast

Zahidah talks of ‘earth optimism’ and ‘ecological intimacy’, and she believes in the importance of art on using a ‘soft language’ about the climate scientists’ messages. She is taking this concern to the international stage later this month at a prestigious festival in Washington DC, USA: The Smithsonian Folklife Festival. 

This summer, the @SmithsonianFolk Festival returns to the National Mall in Washington, D.C. We’re
excited to take part and invite you to join us, June 22–27 and June 30–July 4!
