Reposted from @settlement_uk A settlement is an official agreement intended to resolve a dispute or conflict. It is also a previously “uninhabited” place where people establish a community. These two terms come together to inform a project that questions the appropriateness of both. Situated within Mayflower 400, a massive cultural festival remembering the historic voyage of the Mayflower, ‘Settlement’ reasserts the presence and perspectives of contemporary people Indigenous to various tribal nations throughout North America and into the Pacific. ‘Settlement’ is designed as a creative response and reclaiming of public space to consider the impacts of colonisation on a diverse number of tribal nations who continue to thrive despite its long term effects. ‘Settlement’  creates space and time to address questions and traumas through contemporary artworks and engagement while also presenting a radical and complex living example of Indigenous resilience and intersection. The Settlement project goes beyond conversations of Decolonisation and historical trauma by presenting vibrant and evolving contemporary art & culture while actively practicing Indigenization. Artist Cannupa Hanska Luger has invited artists from various North American tribal nations and into the Pacific region to join in Settlement. Each invited artist is developing work that explores colonialism and its effects on Indigenous people beyond first contact, working with Luger and other Settlement artists over the course of a year to develop and produce their ideas. Engaging for one-week intervals throughout the project’s month-long run, the artists will overlap with Luger and several others so as to live and work together on-site in a large-scale installation of public art at Pounds House, Central Park, Plymouth, UK. #settlementuk #settlement2020 Artwork credit: @jeremynative – #regrann
