Race, Rights & Sovereignty: Claricia Parinussa: 'if you.. / criticality in and of, as, care'

Thursday 9 March, 2023

17:30 - 19:00

Reid Lecture Theatre, Reid Building, Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow

A discussion and Q+A with artist, producer, facilitator, researcher and community organiser Claricia Parinussa. The event will be chaired by Tomiwa Folorunso.

As part of Caring Between Practices programme strand, Claricia will offer a provocation centring a criticality in and of care, as care, rooted in value-based approaches across their multifaceted practice.

Claricia’s work cultivates through a relational, body-based approach which emerges across thinking, moving, writing and doing with a decolonial intention. They are founder & lead facilitator of ID.Y CIC, a QTIBIPOC focussed arts support entity carrying out producing, production management, programme curation, artist development, research, advocacy and anti racist practice facilitation.

As Nusa Revlon, member of the underground ballroom community with the international Iconic House of Revlon, Nusa also leads House Ball Scotland; a platform, home, connection point for QTIBIPOC with the underground Scottish Ballroom Community, and educational entity for allies and wider communities. Nusa’s community work focusses on potentials of self-empowerment, solidarity and genuine accountability which work towards generative intergenerational relations. They are also Trustee for LGBT Unity, a Glasgow based support organisation for LGBTQ+ people of refugee, asylum seeker and migrant backgrounds.

This event is part of the Race, Rights & Sovereignty Caring Between Practices strand. Caring Between Practices is a programme strand inviting artists and practitioners working at the intersections of healing and creative practices. The series aims to consider what an embodied approach to making might look like within our own practices, and how we care for ourselves and each other within the creative process.

The Race, Rights & Sovereignty series is a free programme of public lectures, workshops and other events delivered by The Glasgow School of Art and The Art School: GSA's Students' Association.
