Outer Space – The Essentials: Indigenous Protocols with Warraba Weatherall -SATURDAY, 13 MARCH 2021 FROM 13:00 UTC+10-15:00 UTC+10
As the first workshop of The Essentials, Indigenous Protocols provides vital information regarding protocols on working with Indigenous peoples and culture within the arts. Artist Warraba Weatherall will facilitate this workshop, discussing ways to work and practice on unceded lands. With discussions around public art, sustainable practices, collaboration and further, this workshop will provide the opportunity to answer any questions you may have about your practice.
Warraba Weatherall (b. 1987) is a Brisbane-based installation and street artist from the Kamilaroi Nation of south-west Queensland. Weatherall has a specific interest in archival repositories and structures, and the life of cultural objects and histories within these environments. His practice critiques the legacies of colonisation, where social, economic, and political realities perpetually validate Eurocentric ideologies. Drawing on his personal experience and cultural knowledge, he uses image, material and metaphor to contribute to a cross-cultural dialogue by offering alternate ways of seeing and understanding. Weatherall has exhibited locally and nationally, including DATUM, 2019 (Milani Gallery Carpark, Brisbane); While You Were Sleeping, 2019 (aMBUSH Gallery, Australian National University, Canberra); InstitutionaLies, 2017 (Metro Arts, Brisbane); and National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards, 2017 (Museum and Art Gallery Northern Territory, Darwin).
This project is made possible by a Creative Sparks Grant and the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland. The Creative Sparks Fund is a partnership between the Queensland Government and Brisbane City Council to support local arts and culture in Brisbane.
