The conference will be led by Indigenous voices from Turtle Island (Canada and the USA), Aotearoa (New Zealand) and Australia.
Dates: July 4-6, 2019
Venue: The School of Architecture, Design and Planning,The University of Sydney, Wilkinson Building, 148 City Rd, Darlington, NSW 2008
Registration: $300 for non-presenting attendees; Elders, students and presenters free
The conference will explore themes presented in the publication, Our Voices: Indigeneity and Architecture and forthcoming publication, Our Voices II: The De-colonial Project.
The collections are an exciting advance in the field of architecture, offering multiple indigenous perspectives on architecture and design theory and practice. Indigenous authors from Aotearoa NZ, Canada, Australia, and the USA explore the making and keeping of places and spaces which are informed by indigenous values and identities.
Our Voices II: The De-colonial Project continues the wholly indigenous authorship with an expanded editorial group from three continents including Rau Hoskins from Unitec, Michael Mossman from the University of Sydney, and Dr David Fortin from Laurentian University.
The lack of publications to date offering an indigenous lens on the field of architecture belies the rich expertise found in indigenous communities in all four countries. This expertise is made richer by the fact that this indigenous expertise combines both architecture and design professional practice, that for the most part is informed by Western thought and practice, with a frame of reference that roots this architecture in the indigenous places in which it sits.
