CFP – Conference: “Indigenous Environmental Artistic Practices Responding to Pollution: Comparative Research between Oceania and the Americas”

The property
In-person and online Conference By analysing creative practices by Indigenous artists or artists working closely with Indigenous communities, this conference aims to determine how Indigenous societies perceive and interact with pollution and toxic substances that affect their territories or environment. It examines how conceptions of waste, and its recycling, enlightens discourses on Indigenous sovereignty. We explore in particular how the notion of sovereignty – as understood, lived, and defined by Indigenous peoples – informs and influences artistic practices that respond to contemporary environmental challenges.
