Broken Boxes Podcast will release a series of interviews with participating artists of Unceded Voices 2017.
Episode 65 : Interview with Jessica Canard
Broken Boxes Podcast is an interview format podcast which centers Indigenous artists, activist focused artists, Queer artists, women identifying artists, artists of color and mixed/lost/stolen heritage artists. Through conversation, each featured artist is invited to share insight, story and their process. This project counteracts the isolation that is often created for artists by our contemporary fetish culture. This podcast platform allows for the artist to speak in their words, about their ideas.
By story and insight delivered in the artists own words, the listener finds out how to maintain the artwork as the life work and unfolds the real process involved in being an artist. The conversation style interview format brings up content which includes; the artist’s process in creating their work, self care, how culture plays a role in the work, how art is a tool for affecting change, how the artist must balance personal and professional objectives, how funding for the work must be considered, and how to engage in the large amount of non-art work that is required to sustain life as an artist today. The reciprocal approach to this project gives the listening audience insight, advice and connection, while allowing the featured artist a platform to truly express their views and perspectives on their experience as artist without any restrictions or imposed narrative.
Ginger Dunnill is the founder and producer of Broken Boxes Podcast. Dunnill works in audio composition, sound installation and performance-based art. She collaborates with artists globally, creating, acknowledging and performing work that inspires human connection and speaks on social justice.
