The Point: Decolonizing In Plain Sight

Join ArtsEmerson as we gather to discuss the realities and challenges of decolonization. Learn how everyone, from artists to economists, can take steps to decolonize and be in ‘right relationship’ with Indigenous peoples. Decolonization is often obscured into metaphor or buzzwords, however, a growing number of people take actions every day towards creating a more just society. Whether you are new to the practice of decolonization or an active participant, this is a space for you. Let’s dive in. Join Ronee Penoi (Director of Artistic Programming, ArtsEmerson), Nejem Raheem (Environmental Economist, faculty at Emerson College), and Nathaniel Justiniano (Generative Artist, faculty at Emerson College) in an intimate conversation inspired by ArtsEmerson’s presentations of And So We Walked and Nehanda.

About The Point
At ArtsEmerson, the art is the provocation; conversation is the point. The Point is a conversation series that invites audiences to explore big questions in intimate settings. Hosted by a member of the ArtsEmerson team, local and national luminaries will offer their points of view on the urgent questions surfaced by the artists on our stages. Join us this season to dive deep into topics of cultural theft, government surveillance, and global approaches to decolonization.
