This online symposium is a conversation between 15 First Nations artists, curators, and filmmakers, along with non-Indigenous scholars and museum professionals. It offers a space where First Nations creative practitioners who have not met, can gather, share ideas and insights, and develop connections.

We hope these conversations will inspire new ideas and generate opportunities for future dialogue and exchange.
