Episode 15: Romily Alice Walden

Prerecorded on 6 July 2020
Guests: Romily Alice Walden

In this episode we talk to artist and researcher Romily Alice Walden who works with the Sickness Affinity Group. We talk about her Primer for feminist activist groups for working with disabled members, the importance of access intimacy (Mia Mingus) and Alison Kafer’s 2013 book Feminist, Queer, Crip. Romily brings up the challenges of needing to do less, the need for fluid, meaningless deadlines and how to work and be together in an embodied way. We discuss how care is an integral framework for any relationship. An ethics of care is moving as slowly as the slowest person.
