FCAC Presents - Blak to the Future III

Take a step through a portal unto an alternate reality: a future foretold by young Aboriginal people. They didn’t want to see us in their future – we had other plans. We’re still here leading the way.

Blak 2 the Future 111 exhibition
Duration
3 episodes

Footscray Community Arts Centre (FCAC) presents Blak to the Future, returning for its third and ultimate exhibition this year. This virtual iteration takes form in a world beyond the apocalypse.

Curated by Rosie Kalina (Wemba Wemba, Gunditjmara) come and join us for an immersive arts experience. Created with the philosophy of ‘for us, by us’, this exhibition sees young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists decolonising Narrm - celebrating a future that is Blak, bright, young and deadly.

Take a step through a portal into an alternate reality: a future foretold by young Aboriginal people.
