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.

The conversation will be facilitated by Tomiwa Folorunso, who is a Nigerian-Scottish writer, editor and creative producer based between Brussels and Edinburgh. She has a special interest in Black-Scottish histories and contemporary stories in film and literature. Tomiwa is currently a programmer for Glasgow Film Festival, publication coordinator with the International Film Festival of Rotterdam, and is the executive producer for maud. (2022), a short film about Scottish-Ghanaian artist Maud Sulter. She also writes a monthly(ish) newsletter, DEAR LEXI.


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.
