Decolonizing the Narrative Conversation Series: Ursula Johnson
Decolonizing the Narrative Conversation Series is a monthly online conversation session that invites leading Indigenous Art creators to talk about their practices and processes, facilitated by Reneltta Arluk, Director of Indigenous Arts at Banff Centre.

The Conversation Series engages an Indigenous lens in the various arts forms of Literary Arts, Film and Media Arts, Digital Media, Visual Arts, and Performing Arts including Theatre, Dance, and Music with Opera, Singer/Songwriter, and Classical Music. All areas that Indigenous Arts is connected through. Through the multi-disciplinary Arts lens registrants will gain a deeper learning and understanding of decolonizing artistic practices.

Explore and deepen your understanding of how Indigenous artists are using their arts discipline as a tool to decolonize artistic process and creation.


Join us this month as we welcome Ursula Johnson to the conversation! Ursula Johnson has exhibited work nationally and internationally since graduating from NSCAD in
2006. Johnson describes her work as “changing mediums based on who I am talking to and what
conversation I am trying to have”. A major focus of her practice is based in performance and
installation. Much of her work employs cooperative didactic intervention and is place-based while incorporating various mediums and often collaboration with others.

Ursula has also been collaborating with her spouse, Angella Parsons under the collaborative duo KINUK. Johnson and Parsons have created works that explore notions of public versus private within the scope of the interpersonal nature of their relationship and cultural difference and sameness.

This session with Ursula takes place over two days:
Saturday, July 24, 2021 - Presentation of work
Sunday, July 25, 2021 - Follow up conversation and audience Q&A

Choose the webinars you will be attending. Each day is one hour in duration.
