The talk will imagine how photography, art and exhibition making can become sites for community building by encouraging us to explore a radical imagination of what it means to be together. It will delve into indigenous ways of seeing and being, and practising new models of collaboration. It invites us to ask ourselves – what are the many paths we have taken to get here? Where are the many places we will go?
We invite you to unwind, relax and groove with us before the talk at the Corner Café with a playlist curated by Touching Bass.
What might it mean to cultivate an Otherwise Gaze?
The term is being developed by photographer, visual artist and curator of this event, Fikayo Adebajo to ask the question - when the colonial gaze has been returned, where do we look to next? An Otherwise Gaze is a methodology for being in communion with ourselves and others with the aim of transforming our inner landscapes and the world around us. It is an embodied and communal exploration of being beyond the burden of representation, and a call to action to look into alternatives glittering with the possibility of what may come to pass when we hold each other tightly and dream softly beneath the moonlight.
