UTS BIG THINKING FORUM: What does it mean to create and curate on Gadigal land today?
Date and Time
This event is curated in partnership with the Australasian Association of Writing Programs Annual Conference.
If writers and artists create and curate on Gadigal land - and audiences consume and experience on Gadigal land – does this affect how these practices take place? How do we, or might we, productively co-create in this space?
This panel acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and create. But what exactly does it mean to create and curate on Gadigal land? And does this differ today than it did in the past? What considerations exist for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples? And how might this translate to the contexts of other First Nations people and lands?
This panel of creative and cultural practitioners, who join delegates from the Australasian Association of Writing Programs 2019 conference at UTS, will tackle these big questions and more. Join us for a lively discussion of this important topic, and bring along your own questions and opinions.
