The third it­er­a­tion of the Unceded Voices Col­lec­tive’s street-art bi­en­nial fea­tures pri­mar­ily In­dige­nous-iden­ti­fied and women of colour artists. It seeks to de­velop a net­work of sol­i­dar­ity and sup­port to pro­mote anti-colo­nial re­sis­tance and com­mu­nity di­a­logue.

UNCEDED VOICES COL­LEC­TIVE: Dur­ing the past two edi­tions of the con­ver­gence in 2014 and 2015, we were suc­cess­ful in en­gag­ing pub­lic par­tic­i­pa­tion, which in­cluded passers-by in the streets strik­ing up con­ver­sa­tions with the mu­ral­ists, as well as more struc­tured ac­tiv­i­ties and work­shops that took place in pub­lic spa­ces and both artist-run and com­mu­nity cen­tres. It is these mo­ments of di­a­logue in the so­cial mi­lieu that in­sti­gate a real mo­ment of con­ver­gence be­tween the artists and the pub­lic.
