Arctic/Amazon Symposium September 19-20th 2019

Arctic/Amazon Symposium is co-hosted by the Ontario College of Art and Design University (OCAD U) and the Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery in September 2019. The purpose of this event is to gather established and emerging scholars, curators, and Indigenous artists primarily from North American regions of the Arctic and Amazonian zones to meet person-to-person to exchange ideas, share works, and to develop collaborative strategies that centralize traditional Indigenous knowledges for the survivance and thrivance of Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities amidst tumultuous environmental times. In this 2019 symposium, all of the presenters are Indigenous in order to establish that the overall vision of the Arctic/Amazon project is grounded upon Indigenous ways of knowing and making. At the same time, the symposium honours the significant conceptual and research contributions made by artists to address complex issues regarding climate change, globalized Indigeneity, and political contact zones.
