This lecture is part of the Regeneration: All Our Relations series organized through Sensorium: The Centre for Digital Art and Technology and is co-organized by the Department of Cinema & Media Arts. The indigenous speaker/workshop series Regeneration: All Our Relations will highlight emerging relationships to the environment and to the realm of mythology, imaginary or spiritual led by indigenous scholars and artists. The series seeks to build upon interdisciplinary efforts to decolonize the curriculum and is aimed at introducing diverse systems of knowledge and pedagogy across the varied methodologies within the faculty.

This event is supported by Sensorium, the Department of Cinema & Media Arts, the Department of Theatre, and the Office of the Dean at the School of the Arts, Media, Performance & Design.
