Standing Rock: Decolonizing Creative Practice in the Environmental Justice Movement


Join us for a conversation with first-generation anti-colonial scholar Jaskiran Dhillon, and Tlingit member of Kwanlin Dun First Nation queer Indigenous scholar Anne Spice as we explore the centrality of Indigenous knowledge and resistance in shaping our collective future. Water protectors at Standing Rock shifted the entire discourse of the environmental justice movement. What role do creative practices play in contemporary resistance movements around environmental justice?

This program is presented by the Mural Arts Institute , through the Arts + Environment Capacity Building Initiative, and in partnership with the Environmental Justice Department at Mural Arts Philadelphia.

The Mural Arts Institute is supported by The JPB Foundation, The Kresge Foundation, and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
