WAVELENGHTS GLOBAL MUSIC CONFERENCE @ APAP

 Thursday, January 9 (10:45am – 12:15pm)  

Wavelengths Global Music Conference @ APAP 

Hilton Midtown, 1335 6th Ave, Concourse A 

 

 Indigenous Intersections and Networks – Historic Constellations and Future Trajectories 

 presented in association with Mundial Montreal 

 

Since time immemorial Indigenous peoples have shared complex relationships and networks; exchanging ideas, art, culture, and commerce across vast distances with both Indigenous and non-Indigenous allies.  How are we re-building these traditional practices and how can allies re-establish Indigenous access to broader global networks and wider perspectives of “transnational” connections?  

  

How can we interrogate privilege and the ways in which we participate in upholding unjust systems of power? What are the possibilities of transcending colonialism both personally and collectively? How can we instead, strengthen our collective communities and build deeper relationships and safe spaces for connection and respect both personally and in our work? 

  

Through an Indigenous lens, this discussion will reflect on where we have been, where are we now and where we want to go as global, intersectional, communities.
