Embracing the tremendous diversity and strength of Indigenous arts practices with a focus on the south-east of Australia, this fully online subject gives a broad and holistic view of the roles played by First Nations artists and their contribution to the political landscape of Australia. Utilising Indigenous ways of mapping learning, students will chart their independent journeys through reflection on positionality and structural privilege by engaging with historical and contemporary impacts of colonisation in a non-linear digital inquiry-based approach over six modules. Students will reflect on their learning about First Nations perspectives, knowledges and artistic and cultural practices and the role of cultural reclamation for self-actualisation and resilience.
Intended learning outcomes
On completion of this subject, students should be able to:
- explore the histories and embedded knowledge of the stories of the Country in which they live;
- identify public sites of significance to Indigenous cultures and creative practices in your local area;.
- apply principles of cultural safety when engaging in complex relational, intercultural dialogues and experiences;
- critically discuss the role of Indigenous creative and cultural practices in the context of Australian history;
- explain different viewpoints of how continuing, reclaiming and revitalising creative and cultural practices in Indigenous communities effects political and societal change;
- critically evaluate positionality in response to discussions, experiences, and the diversity of Indigenous perspectives expressed in creative and cultural practices.
