Opening Party for ‘In Residence’, a multi-disciplinary exhibition and symposium cross three venues in Glasgow by Glasgow School of Art People of Colour Society.
Simultaneously an act of self care and an act of defiance, we are creating space for vital conversations while challenging the lack of visibility for artists and students of colour within this city. In Residence is the place for us to tell our stories; to form solidarities; it is by us and for us.
The opening party will include performances by artists based in Glasgow, students of Royal Conservatoire Scotland and students of Glasgow School of Art.
DJ's on the night:
Sarra Wild (OH141)
The most outspoken promoter and DJ in Glasgow, Sarra Wild is unapologetically disrupting the white male dominated electronic music scene in a number of ways. As a DJ her sets are always unapologetic, exciting and bold, mixing all kinds of sounds to create a unique set every time. She is responsible for Grassroots Glasgow, a series of DJ workshops and panel talks which aim to encourage more women to take up the craft and as OH141 she has booked international acts such as Hieroglyphic Being, Pan Daijing and most recently Gaika.
Plantainchipps B2B Vatsu
Up and coming female dj’s on the scene, professing their shared love for rnb, trap, afrobeats and dancehall. Plantainchipps and Vatsu envision their creativity as an outlet to express themselves and attract diversity onto the dance floor
