Day 1 - Friday 6th, 4:00pm - 5:00pm AWST
MFT is a museum with no walls, a creative cultural think tank founded to promote a society where everyone can live peacefully with each other, free from racial and religious prejudice and discrimination.
‘Through our conversations, we promote unity in society and work to dismantle racism, intolerance and hate through art, history, technology and values-based education. Our mission to create a more empathetic society is increasingly important in a world impacted by Covid-19 and global racial unrest.’
In this session MFT will celebrate the conclusion of their 30-week human rights x human responsibilities campaign and discuss the importance of this week’s human right: that everyone has duties to the community in which they live, to uphold their human rights and the rights of others. How can the arts collectively raise awareness and steward our fundamental human rights? What is our responsibility as artists, to ourselves and to each other and to the communities in which we operate?

We would like to acknowledge the Aboriginal people of the Bibbulmun nation as the traditional custodians of the lands on which we work and live. We pay our respects to Elders past and present and honour all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as the first people of this nation.
