Decolonize This Place x SEVENTH Gallery
Presented by Mel&NYC and All Conference
Sunday 29 July, 2018, 3-4:30pm
In collaboration with New York based collective Decolonize This Place, SEVENTH Gallery is hosting a public forum to extend it’s commitment to decolonising our structure and program. Standing in solidarity with local First Nations groups and community organisations we will discuss how to create a culturally safe space and oppose gentrification in Gertrude Street. SEVENTH Board members Andy Butler and Hanann Al Daqqa will be joined by Amin Husain & Nitasha Dhillon of Decolonize This Place (via Skype) along with NYC DJ and poet Jive Poetic, and local community representatives, taking an intersectional approach to decolonizing our place. Decolonize This Place is a space that is action-oriented around indigenous struggle, black liberation, Free Palestine, global wage workers and de-gentrification.
