Artistic alliances: Indigeneity and fine arts

Artistic alliances: Indigeneity and fine arts

Indigenous arts engage people in multiple ways. Some works are more visible than others for some audiences and for different reasons. What is the social impact of Indigenous arts?
The research and creative activity happening in the Faculty of Fine Arts reflects the dynamic range of contemporary work being created, Indigenous knowledge and both the written and spoken word. Join fine arts teaching faculty and graduate students at this timely interactive session to learn about some of the surprising and engaging approaches to contemporary practices.

Presenters: Gregory Scofield (Department of Writing), Carey Newman (Department of Visual Arts), Lauren Jerke (Department of Theatre) and Lindsay Delaronde (Indigenous Resurgence Coordinator, Faculty of Fine Arts)

Organized by: Faculty of Fine Arts
