Momentum artists in conversation with Daniel Browning and performances by Eric Avery and Yo-Yo Ma.
The arts face new challenges and responsibilities as the global temperature rises in polarised debates over the climate, Indigenous and human rights. In a frayed world where the search for truth is compromised by disinformation, we explore the space for artists to make a difference – in particular First Nations practitioners contending with the legacies of colonialism.
Poets, artists and activists Evelyn Araluen, Joel Davison and Kirli Saunders lead this urgent panel discussion on the way art intersects with social agency and the challenges ahead. The voices of First Nations thinkers, storytellers, poets and musicians articulate what it means to make art and tell stories at this crucial moment in time. Special guest contributions come from musicians Eric Avery and Yo-Yo Ma. Moderated by Blak Box Momentum curator Daniel Browning.
Presented by Urban Theatre Projects with Yo-Yo Ma’s Bach Project.
