About the Show
Note: Auslan Interpreter will be there from 2-3pm.
Umyuangvigkaq is a place to gather ideas. This free event – a round table conversation and durational sewing bee – invites Indigenous thinkers, artists, allies and accomplices to engage in generous dialogue and action as we stitch together a quilt of conversation, ideas and fabrics, weaving at the intersections of Indigenous Australian and American cultures.
Come with a ready heart. Led by a council of three Indigenous artists, educators, curators and facilitators – Vicki Couzens, a Gunditjmara woman from the Western Districts of Victoria; Genevieve Grieves, a Worimi woman from Southeast Australia based in Melbourne; and Emily Johnson, a Yup’ik woman from Alaska based in Lenapehoking (NYC) – all participants will be welcome to listen, speak and participate. New provocations (listed below) will be offered by the council throughout the day encouraging personal reflection, critical interventions, and conversation.
