2017 RUIAC Symposium: Philosophies of Practice

Philosophies of Practice: Symposium on Indigenous Arts in the Academy, 20 – 24 November 2017

Following three days of workshops involving artists and researchers from New South Wales, Victoria, Western Australia, the Northern Territory, and elsewhere, in which artistic and ceremonial approaches to knowledge production were explored, enacted and reflected upon, the symposium Philosophies of practice showcased models of community-led research and learning by Indigenous researchers, artists, cultural practitioners, rangers, and community linguists. Participants drew upon and enacted ceremony, and strengthened ties between clan, language and cultural groups. At the conclusion of the event the Research Unit for Indigenous Arts and Cultures was launched.
