Las Nietas de Nono / Parceleras Afrocaribeñas

Parceleras AfroCaribeñas (PATBA) are a group of intergenerational Afro-Caribbean women, community leaders, activists, artists from the San Antón and Saint Just neighborhoods. They have come together to carry out social justice projects in San Antón, Carolina in a way that provides the neighborhood with cultural, recreational, artistic, and business opportunities, contributing to the transformation for equity and social justice of black communities. Las Nietas de Nonó, artist sisters, mulowayi iyayi nonó and mapenzi chibale nonó are part of PATBA. They are multimedia artists that use theater iand performance as a way to investigate and reflect on the complexities of spirituality, violence, race and migration. Combining artistic resistance, sustainable agriculture and alternative schooling with local talents, they are aiming to transform an empty school into a community centre for art, culture and healing, alongside intergenerational education and community organising.
