Aboriginal Peoples and the visual arts – Option 2
An Aboriginal Studies topic where students investigate the importance of visual arts to the survival of Aboriginal Peoples, and their importance in expressing the diversity of identities of Aboriginal Peoples.
The option also explores how Aboriginal Peoples and non-Aboriginal people can have differences in their conceptual understanding of the visual arts. Issues surrounding cultural appropriation, the protection of intellectual and artistic copyright, and the varying and sensitive roles of individuals, communities, and language and cultural groups in the development and expression of visual arts by Aboriginal Peoples are investigated.
