Artists are our storytellers, history keepers and future makers. The renewal and revival of cultural practices through song is a global phenomenon across the Indigenous music sector. Through language revitalisation, connection to country and intergenerational transfer of knowledge, Indigenous artists are continuing the storytelling of some of the oldest surviving cultures in the world. This work transcends Western notions of space and time; and plays a vital role in Indigenous communities.
This artist-led conversation will unpack the role of cultural resurgence in music, and offer pathways for this work to be more supported by the wider industry.
