Switchboard would like to invite members of our Trans, Non-Binary and Intersex (TNBI) community to attend a special free event we are holding a week today (20 November) to mark Transgender Day of Remembrance.
During Trans Grief and Solidarity, Brighton-based poet/spoken word artist Priss Nash will explore the themes of collective grief, solidarity and community by performing poetry and the spoken word. They will also hold a creative writing workshop.
Uncensored, unfiltered, unapologetic and oversharing, Priss tells their stories through verses, bars and pars. Priss’s work covers a range of hard-hitting subjects with a focus on race, trauma, identity and mental health.
Offering an extremely personal and uncensored viewpoint through her poetry, Priss’ work and performances often push for real and tangible change by making audiences question their own biases and prejudices.
Stemming from a musical background and a love of hip-hop, Nash often incorporates rhythmic flow and rapping into her performances in view of some of her favourite poets being rappers as she believes “hip-hop is just poetry with 808s”.
Priss’s performance and workshop will be complemented by arts and crafts. Refreshments will also be available.
A collaboration between our TNBI Social Prescribing and Grief Encounters teams, Trans Grief and Solidarity will be held from 5.30pm to 8pm on Monday 20 November in the Conference Room at Community Base, 113 Queens Road, Brighton, BN1 3XG.
You can reserve your ticket here.
Please note that the event is by and for members of the TNBI community only. We respectfully ask that cis allies do not attend.
