Plimsoll Gallery & Ian Potter Recital HallSummary:
A special symposium reflecting on the power of art to interrogate this nation’s troubled history
This symposium is a public program associated with the exhibition Out of the Everywhen and is co-presented with the Theatre Royal and the University of Tasmania’s College of Arts, Law, and Education.
As Australia considers the implications of Truth-telling and a proposed Indigenous Voice to Parliament, join us for this special symposium reflecting on the power of art to interrogate this nation’s troubled history, to stimulate our national consciousness in resolving current challenges and create equitable futures. Through in-person and hybrid-presentation panels we explore the role of art in activism, caring for Country, and unpack how art contributes to the action of Truth-telling.
