Roundtable: Forward From Here: Indigenous Creators, Stories, And Partnerships
Tuesday, June 13, 2017
12:30 PM - 1:30 PM
IVOR PETRAK ROOM
The recent controversy about cultural appropriation is only the latest flashpoint in a long-standing issue. Can it be used as a catalyst to create constructive change? Indigenous stories are finding audiences in Canada and around the world. How can we work together to engage audiences with these stories while also respectfully engaging their source? Australia’s ‘Pathways and Protocols’ is one model that resulted in Indigenous and non-Indigenous partners creating some of the biggest hits in the history of Australian television. Can it work here, and what would that look like?
