Beyond Borders: An Exploration of the Indigenous Artistic Narrative in the Contemporary Commercial Art World

Host: Chloe Jones
Panellists: Dixon Patten Jr, Troy Firebrace, Alkina Edwards

Discover the dynamic intersection of First Nations creativity and commercial artistry by joining us for a panel discussion delving into the profound impact of Indigenous perspectives on the design and commercial art landscape.

As the pulse of artistic innovation quickens, First Nations voices are increasingly shaping the narrative of value in the art world.

Explore pressing questions at the heart of this cultural renaissance: How do First Nations artists forge culturally respectful pathways? How can businesses maintain integrity while navigating diverse creative paradigms?

In this thought-provoking session, we delve into the critical dialogue surrounding respectful and meaningful engagement with First Nations artists and will gain invaluable insights from local Yorta Yorta artists Chloe Jones, Dixon Patten, Troy Firebrace, and Alkina Edwards, as they illuminate their journeys, challenges, and triumphs within the commercial art sphere.

We invite anyone interested in seizing this unique opportunity to embrace Indigenous perspectives, foster equitable collaboration, and ignite your own creative evolution.

This event is a Creative City Networking Session supported by Greater Shepparton City Council and produced by Kaiela Arts in partnership with TOPSOIL Collective.

Following the panel, a light supper and drinks will be provided.

Mon 20th May 2024, 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm AEST at The Connection, 7287 Midland Hwy, Shepparton VIC 3630, Australia
