Artistic development, managing a career, building new work, touring and performing are tough enough for any artist, but for Indigenous artists, the challenges are greatly complicated by ongoing issues of colonization, racism, stereotyping, and access to resources. For mainstream agents and presenters, these same issues create barriers on the other side of the booking process. In the absence of experience, knowledge, and understanding, agents and presenters have difficulty with context, interpretation and authenticity. The fear of inadvertently causing offense or seeming disrespectful, can undermine even those with the best of intentions.
