Discuss Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge keeping, design collaborations and uniquely Indigenous ways of knowing and working.
Indigenous design, as many people understand it still, is a homogenous art form, but this is changing. The community is growing in its appreciation of the nuanced design differences between artists and peoples from different areas on Country.
There has also been a steady flourishing of both the representation of Indigenous design and images embedded into structures, as public art, and of architects who identify as Indigenous, creating new structures.
Growing mainstream interest and use of Indigenous designs also brings up questions of meaning, intention, ownership and replication, proper use, and acknowledgment. How Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge is managed is also an interesting question for our institutions and organisations to manage.
Join us to hear about the key things to know about when proposing to collaborate with Indigenous designers. Listen to examples of great process and outcomes, that will see the continuation of the extraordinary growth of Indigenous art and design into the future.
Join us online or in the studio…
