In spite of continuing assaults against Indigenous peoples and their ally-accomplices worldwide, dynamic resistance to colonial, capitalist, and extractivist violence remains strong. This session explores the myriad geographies of decolonial action worldwide. We ask:
- Where are the fissures in colonial, capitalist, and extractivist realities?
- What movements, actions, and arts practices may we look toward as we envision and build decolonial futures?
- How might we connect the dots between geographically diverse creative resistance, in order to identify potential pathways toward decolonization?
