Bryony McIntyre and Barry Esson are founding members of Arika, a Scotland-based political arts organisation concerned with supporting connections between artistic production and social change. Arika produces Episodes, an iterative program of multiformat public events staged at Tramway, an arts venue in Glasgow, that has addressed abolitionist politics, conceptual mathematics, disability justice, and the Black Radical Tradition, among other themes. Through its Local Organising program, Arika works to redistribute its access to resources and agency by making them available in solidarity with UK-based grassroots political communities who are pushing back against the violence of racist borders, poverty, and the criminalisation of sex work.
