PRESENTERS Expression of Interest to be a member of the pilot Global First Nations Performance Network
First Nations Dialogues (5 - 12 January 2019) is a series of sector led meetings, presentations, discussions and workshops with artists, presenters, curators and producers across varying conferences and festivals during New York in January 2019. First Nations Dialogues includes an invitation to develop the pilot Global First Nations Performance Network (GFNPN).

Only 5 Australian presenters will be selected, who will join 5 successful USA and 5 successful Canadian presenters. The GFNPN will occur over three days at Abrons Art Centre: 6, 7 and 8 January from 11am - 2pm daily.

CRITERIA:

A reminder that funding to attend First Nations Dialogues and GFNPN meetings in New York Jan 2019 is self-reliant.

Participants must attend all three days of the GFNPN workshops and as many First Nations Dialogues programming, including public discussions and performances.

Following the initial meeting in New York; members of GFNPN will be encouraged to attend at least one GFNPN event annually.

The benefits of establishing and being part of the GFNPN is to create a supportive network of Presenters who are committed to growing their organisation in the presentation of First Nations work, by adopting meaningful change such as: the incorporation of at least one First Nation staff with your organisations and the commission, presentation and/or development of a new First Nations work annually.

The primary objective is to determine the GFNPN structure. The workshops will include rigorous discussion interrogating eventual membership commitments and terms of membership. Facilitated discussions will develop collective goals for decolonisation or Indigenizing practices in your organisations, First Nations led process for commissioning new work by First Nations artists and relational touring support of work within the GFNPN.

Participating in the GFNPN three day workshops indicates that Membership will be taken up in 2020.
