Franke James

Franke James is an artist and storyteller who merges science and personal activism to engage people, on the streets and online. In her latest book, Banned on the Hill, Franke tells how she first discovered she was being censored by the Canadian government for making art about dirty oil and climate change — and how she fought back using creativity, crowd-funding, and investigative digging. In 2013, Franke took her art to the streets of Ottawa, Halifax, Calgary, and Washington, D.C.
