Andrew Boyd

Andrew Boyd is an author, humorist and long-time veteran of creative campaigns for social change. He led the decade-long satirical media campaign” Billionaires for Bush”, founded the art-activist toolbox and laboratory “Beautiful Trouble”, and co-created the grief-storytelling ritual “The Climate Ribbon”. He’s the author of several books, including Daily Afflictions and the forthcoming I Want a Better Catastrophe — where he explores the emotional and existential dimensions of our climate predicament. Unable to come up with his own lifelong ambition, he’s been cribbing from Milan Kundera: “to unite the utmost seriousness of question with the utmost lightness of form.”
