Episode 8: Refuse Powers' Grasp Line Up

Posted on 13 Aug 2016

Life in flight from race, gender and every other prison

Is there a link between how we’re divided into populations that can be caged and exiled by the prison-industrial complex, and the ways people’s bodies are violently categorised and segregated by race, class, gender or ability?

Episode 8 celebrates all the unruly ways we refuse to be defined by such violence, escape attempts to constrain us, tear down the walls of normative culture and build joy in flight.

Featuring: performances, discussions, screenings and workshops with gender non-conforming rebels, students of blackness, lawyers, archivists, anarco-feminist street artists and witches, party hosts, 


filmmakers, prison abolitionists, poets, DJ’s, ex-prisoners and multi-media artists including:

Joshua Allen


Kai Lumumba Barrow and G.O.D.S

Elysia Crampton

Dean Spade

Che Gossett

Reina Gossett

Juliana Huxtable

CeCe McDonald
