Decolonizing the Narrative Conversation Series

Decolonizing the Narrative Conversation Series is a monthly online conversation session that invites leading Indigenous Art creators to talk about their practices and processes, facilitated by Reneltta Arluk, Director of Indigenous Arts at Banff Centre.

The Conversation Series engages an Indigenous lens in the various arts forms of Literary Arts, Film and Media Arts, Digital Media, Visual Arts, and Performing Arts including Theatre, Dance, and Music with Opera, Singer/Songwriter, and Classical Music. All areas that Indigenous Arts is connected through.
Explore and deepen your understanding of how Indigenous artists are using their arts discipline as a tool to decolonize artistic process and creation.
All sessions take place over two days:
On the first day, the Indigenous Arts leader does a presentation of their work.
The following day, there is a conversation with the arts leader and Reneltta Arluk.
The second session is the space intended for questions and comments from the registrants.
