Reconciliation through Cross-Cultural Collaboration

updated:

Universities Art Association of Canada/L'Association d'art des universites du Canada
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 1, 2018

Following milestone moments in Canadian history, namely the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, it has become imperative that all members of the nation should be implicated in processes of conciliation and reconciliation. This turn must include immigrants, migrants, and refugees who diaspored to Canada through colonial networks of their own, and whose presence has been largely overlooked in the “difficult binary” constructed between colonizer and the colonized in both historical and emergent discourses on decolonization. How might these postcolonial subjects enter into artistic or curatorial collaboration with Indigenous peoples of Canada that both acknowledge cultural diversity and their shared colonial beginnings?
