Empower Creativity & Amplify Indigenous Voices: Contribute to Our Digital Publications Program

The Indigenous Curatorial Collective (ICCA) is developing a space where Indigenous voices resonate loudly in the vibrant arts discourse. Our Digital Publications Program is more than a platform; it’s a catalyst for change, a space where narratives are reshaped, and inclusivity leads to change.

Why do we need this platform? Because it’s time to decolonize arts publications. It’s time to dismantle systemic barriers and amplify Indigenous perspectives. Our mission is clear: to reclaim history by championing Indigenous narratives and fostering cultural diversity in the arts.

Who does it serve? You, the Indigenous creators, curators, artists, and writers whose voices deserve to be heard. It serves researchers, curators, students, and enthusiasts hungry for authentic insights into Indigenous art and culture. It serves anyone committed to building a more inclusive cultural landscape.

What problems does it solve? It dismantles barriers. It provides a platform for Indigenous creators to share their stories, enhance their CVs, and connect with peers. It curates a comprehensive repository of Indigenous art, spanning mediums, perspectives, communities, and time. It’s a step towards decolonization and a more equitable arts community.
