Biography

Arielle John is a millennial writer, arts educator and cultural researcher. She shifts between Trinbago and its diaspora, attempting to discern her [generation’s] role in navigating a quick-shifting planet. Through poetry, performance, mas and disability studies, she works to make sense of postcolonial life, by attempting to translate how Caribbean people have adapted to and survived their subjection, a kind of obeah. A Callaloo Fellow, Goldsmiths Alumna and youth mentor within the international Brave New Voices Network, her most recent piece of labour looks at the ritual performance of divine femininity within the Trinidad Carnival and a devised solo-performance “Bout Blue”, staged in 2018.
