Mandate

Mandate: The Aboriginal Curatorial Collective / Collectif des commissaires autochtones (ACC-CCA) is an Indigenous arts organization that advocates, activates, and engages on behalf of Canadian and international Indigenous curators, critics, artists and representatives of arts and cultural organizations. The ACC-CCA develops and programs curatorial projects, researches Indigenous practices and educates through critical discourses on Aboriginal arts and culture. ACC-CCA focuses on increasing opportunities in established arts institutions and champions the development of new Indigenous-controlled arts spaces. We collaborate, challenge, and engage in critical discourse, always viewing the arts through a contemporary Indigenous lens.
