James Parnell

educator, curator, dancer, and zinester
James Parnell is an educator, curator,
dancer, and zinester based in The Hague.
He is focused on collective knowledge
sharing and learning through teaching,
publication, zines, and performance. He
is invested in topics that can be awkward
but very human—such as apologies and
conflict—and in creating spaces where communities can gather and share lived
experience as a valuable knowledge set.

interdisciplinary lecture, performance, and
storytelling series based in The Hague.
Additionally, he is an event programmer
at WORM Rotterdam, where he manages
WORM Pirate Bay.
