In Summer 2023 AD Diane Roberts, Curatorial Dramaturgs Lydie Dubuisson, Nadia Myre, Anju Singh, Julie Tamiko Manning, and ALP Project Manager & Lead Researcher Gregorio Pablo Arbolay, worked alongside our Prismatic SeedPool gathering artists to materialise the first in-person gathering and environment to explore collaborative artistic work.
Moving Together/Arriving Together: Decolonising Creative Partnerships (funded by Canada Council for the Arts Cultivate Program), was launched in K’jipuktuk / Halifax at the Prismatic Arts Festival.
Nine ALP artists from across Canada (and Nigeria!) came together for a week of collaborative creation laboratories and public events, with the aim of co-weaving our ancestral stories through artistic creation, reflection, and dialogue, to seed distinct approaches to cultural and community partnerships.
At the root of the SeedPool Gathering and our Moving Together / Arriving Together project lies a central guiding question: How can we cultivate decolonial approaches to creative partnerships through sharing new collective possibilities and pathways for artistic creation and community collaboration?
