The Future is Indigenous: Cultural change to survive a climate change world, presented by Arts House as part of Refuge 2019: Displacement.
Indigenous people are the world’s great survivors. In the face of land theft, climate change and genuine attempts to bring about extinction, Indigenous populations across the globe persevere. The resilience and adaptability of these populations are increasingly providing vital lessons in survival for all – how would embracing Indigenous culture and ways of thinking help Australia survive the impacts of climate catastrophe?
The Future is Indigenous: Cultural change to survive a climate change world is a session of the North Melbourne School of Displacement by artist Keg de Souza, co-programmed by Wirlomin Noongar collaborator Claire G. Coleman. The School puts learning itself under the microscope with a series of discussions that offer vital correctives to the methods of sharing knowledge that dominate our society.
North Melbourne School of Displacement is part of Refuge, a five-year project that offers us new ways to rally as a community and prepare for climatic events. Refuge 2019 is at Arts House from 24 August – 7 September.
Duration: 90 mins
Supported by – The City of Melbourne through Arts House. Redfern School of Displacement was first presented as part of the 20th Biennale of Sydney (2016)
