Decolonizing Street Art – Anti-Colonial Street Artists Convergence

Montréal, unceded territory
august 2014

Decolonizing street art: Anti-colonial street artists convergence fosters the idea of bringing together street artists of indigenous and settler origins and build an artistic community of shared anticolonial values. The convergence will promote a type of street art that advocates the decolonization of Turtle Island and will remind the montrealers of the city’s colonial history.

Le projet Decolonizing street art : Anti-colonial street artists convergence s’inscrit dans l’idée de réunir des artistes de rue autochtones et non-autochtones alliés afin de bâtir une communauté d’artistes partageant les mêmes valeurs anticoloniales. Il s’agit de représenter un art de la rue politique qui revendique un processus de décolonisation de nos relations sur l’Ile de la Tortue et qui permet de rappeler à la population montréalaise que cette ville s’est construite sur le territoire volé et non cédé.
