The intersectionality of collaboration, ethics, and Indigenous protocols in art-making.
What does it mean to ‘decolonize’ or ‘indigenize’ an artistic space? How do we create spaces that are safe? What is an intersectional approach to decolonization — how do we start from a place of openness to all? What can we learn from each other’s discipline’s approach to decolonization? Let’s talk about the artistic process. The language used in a space, land acknowledgement, who is in charge? Discussion of having medicine in the room (turning the fire alarm off), listening to indigenous voices and voices of colour. having an elder in the space. Sharing food, time for silence/rest/breaks. From hiring to rehearsals, what do we each value in the process to help make a space ‘safer’.
