Imaging the future we want
 'What are you doing to decolonise your practice, your mind, your thinking?' Tristan Schultz, First Nations Artist, Arts Front 2030.
Arts Front was a national three-day gathering of artists, thinkers and change agents to help shape the future of culture and arts in Australia. Diversity Arts Australia (formerly Kultour), with support from Frontyard, ran a workshop inviting participants to imagine what a decolonised culturally diverse arts landscape looks like in 2030 and to develop strategies to get there.

Based on the idea that we cannot create the future we want unless we can first imagine and vision it, 36 participants were invited into 2030, to reflect on the past 14 years, appraising the strategies, actions and movements led by artists, creative thinkers and communities to decolonise the arts.

"It is 2030. The Decolonised Artists' Alliance is marking the 14th year since the dissolution of the hegemonic, monocultural, hetero-patriarchal colonialist arts establishment. The Collective inaugurated a range of initiatives and campaigns, including the celebrated Decolonised Arts Festival (DAF), which turns ten this year. More about DAF here.

"Participants will examine the Collective's original manifesto, "7 Steps to Decolonisation", that mobilised a generation of artists and dissidents of colour to intervene into museums, galleries and theatres, originally as a gesture of protest." The workshop was run by Dr Paula Abood, Lena Nahlous and supported by Clare Cooper.
