Critical Path:

Calling First Nations dance makers!

Do you have a truth-telling project or idea which needs dedicated, supported research time, both in and out of the studio?

Through partnering with AIATSIS and connecting you with the Collections Department – First Nations at Powerhouse Museum, Critical Path’s First Nations Truth Telling Research Residency is designed to support your research and choreographic exploration of a truth telling idea.

The history, tradition and culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their experiences of injustices following colonisation has been largely unknown to Australians. (Parliament of Australia)

As artists, we can use our work to Truth-Tell and change this.

What do YOU want to uncover the truth on?

  • Family History
  • Connecting to Culture
  • Re-telling historical events from First Nations
  • A moment in colonisation
  • How current issues affect you as a First Nations person.
