Indigenous and QTIPOC contributions in popular mediaPresented by Blak Dot Gallery

We live in a world that is highly influenced by black and queer cultures. Although this prevails, futurism in popular media fails to reflect a near future where black or queer people are main protagonists or central to the revolution or progression of humanity and the protection of our environment.
'Blak-Queer Futurism' looks at utopian and dystopian futures, reestablishing the importance of Indigenous and QTIPOC contributions to what our future will become.
Drawing upon the resilience, knowledge and spirituality of indigenous people here and from abroad, 'Blak-Queer Futurism' calls upon artists to imagine a future where they are the revolutionaries, the trailblazers, the change-makers of the now and tomorrow, through multi disciplinary works spanning visual, aural and performative arts.
