ANTHRO APOLOGY unravels the complex relationship between arts & cultural institutions and Indigenous peoples by looking towards a shared future through an examination of the museum’s past.
Digi Youth Arts new work is part of a long term residency at the Queensland Museum. unsettle is a multi-arts project that provides an opportunity for established artists to mentor youth artists as they question, challenge and expose the colonial nature of cultural collections in galleries and museums. The works created during the residency will offer audiences new interpretations and observations of cultural heritage collections and provide opportunities for the wider community to reflect on the role of communities within museums and galleries.
