This roundtable sparks a complex conversation that centres around touring and examines the current transactional relationship between presenters and artists.
How do we move towards a more relational model that aligns with Indigenous ways of working? How do we build a stronger eco-system where Indigenous artists are not only programmed – but welcomed, held and supported by presenters and connected with local lndigenous communities?
Indigenous presenters, artists and companies have been leading the rise of the international presentation of Indigenous work, traversing between non-Indigenous led organizations and sovereign spaces.
This roundtable discussion brings together Indigenous presenters and artists from Canada, Australia and New Zealand to share what has worked for them, interrogate the current models, and explore ways forward for working together in sustainable and relational ways.
