The Offer: Indigenous Cultures: Representation and Mis-Representation
Indigenous Cultures: Representation and Mis-Representation
In the global response to climate and ecological emergency, indigenous communities are very much on the front line, but their voices are rarely heard and they have little control over how they are represented. Join a discussion with, Jeremy Dennis, contemporary fine art photographer and a tribal member of the Shinnecock Indian Nation in Southampton, NY, whose work explores indigenous identity, culture, and assimilation, Thiago Jesus, People’s Palace Projects, who will talk about their work in the Brazilian Amazon and Sarah Shenker, Senior Researcher with Survival International who work alongside tribal peoples around the world.
This session has been inspired by Complicité’s production The Encounter, that will be available to watch online for free, from 15-25 May (see Complicité website).
