IMAA conferences

Listen – Witness – Transmit

National Indigenous Media Arts Gathering
June 12 -15, 2018 in Saskatoon, SK          

We acknowledge that, Listen, Witness, Transmit, took place on Treaty 6 Territory and the Homeland of the Métis. We pay our respect to the First Nations and Métis ancestors of this place and reaffirm our relationship with one another.

The National Indigenous Media Arts Coalition (NIMAC) in partnership with the Independent Media Arts Alliance (IMAA) are pleased to announce that this year’s conference took place June 12-15, 2018 in Saskatoon, SK. Listen, Witness, Transmit will be the second Indigenous lead IMAA gathering in the history of both organisations and will feature keynote addresses, panel discussions, workshops, performances, exhibitions and screenings.

The gathering took place at Wanuskewin Heritage Park approximately 15 minutes outside of the city, along with satellite programming at AKA Artist-Run and PAVED Arts within Saskatoon.

Each day employed a resurgence practice: the first day – Listening, the second day – Witnessing, and the third day – Transmitting to build momentum that informed Indigenous pathways of continuities, resilience and relationships through art, the community and the collective.
