Theme

  • Anti-Black racism

Vercetty Lindsey explores public art and how we can reimagine public space to be an “afrotopia” or a safe space for Black people to exist and be represented in the landscape.

He introduces the concept of “sancophonology,” which is about exploring the past through an African lens and using that understanding to build a better future.

Taking action

  • Learn the history of the land you settle: from Indigenous histories to Mathew Dacosta
  • Explore work on Black and Indigenous futures
  • Think of yourself as an ancestor — as someone with accountability to those who will come after you and those who came before you
