PACIFIC INTERSECTIONS AND CROSS-CURRENTS: UNCHARTED HISTORIES AND FUTURE TRENDS
Intersections (land-based) and cross-currents (water and air based) are migratory spaces of confluence and exchange. They are spaces where consideration can be given to where we have come from and what directions we might take, where histories, written and unwritten, visual and intangible, reside alongside new possibilities for contemporary cultural practice. They are also uncertain spaces, where creativity and our understandings of identity and place may be strengthened or transformed—and where new narratives can be created. This conference is an opportunity for contemporary artists, cultural leaders, historians, museum and gallery curators, researchers, and collectors to engage in lively and creative dialogues that explore these migratory spaces in a spirit of true enquiry. Among the topics to be addressed will be Pacific connections to the First Nations.
