After 40+ years in print, Artlink proudly delivers its annual Artlink Indigenous issue, Visualising Sovereignty, edited by Paola Balla and Ali Gumillya Baker. Now in its eleventh year, this platform brings together leading First Nations scholars, artists and curators from across the country who have responded critically and candidly to the political, social and cultural issues of the moment.

Come and join Artlink Indigenous_Visualising Sovereignty Guest Editor Paola Balla, Artlink Editor Una Rey, and Naarm-based First Nations writers as they discuss the magazine’s current issue’s theme, the editorial process and ideas addressed by the writers:

+ Community-focused, Indigenous-led curatorial practice
+ Blak architecture, public art and placemaking
+ Educating contemporary art audiences

Featuring speakers Hayley Millar Baker and Kimberley Moulton.

This talk is presented as part of UNTOLD: Marking Life, Indigenous reflections on continuing/maintaining/living rituals presented by Agency Projects.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
