This session was presented as part of Future Cities Canada: #UnexpectedSolutions.

Against the backdrop of Toronto’s Year of Public Art 2021, and ongoing land-based art and policy projects in Toronto’s Lower Don River, this panel discussion convenes Indigenous artists and curators from Toronto and across Canada to discuss the need for Indigenous-led protocols for creating public art on the territory of others. In this webinar, Candice Hopkins, Dylan Robinson, Bonnie Devine, Catherine Tammaro and David Garneau share their insights and experiences on ways of approaching land-based practices and around the establishment of protocols for Indigenous public art.
