We Have Stories: Film as a Method for Decolonial Curation (Dr. Kate Hennessy, co-applicant) sets the stage for the development of decolonial curatorial practices for the confirmed exhibition at the Yellowhouse Art Centre in partnership with the Access to Media Education Society on Galiano Island, British Columbia. This research builds on an ongoing collaboration between Hallenbeck and Sahtu Dene and Coast Salish storyteller Rosemary Georgeson to co-develop decolonial methodologies for the multimodal sharing of Indigenous women’s connections to fish, water, and family along the Salish Sea. This research draws on Hallenbeck’s experience as a documentary filmmaker and community planner with expertise in community-based and collaborative approaches to film creation and knowledge mobilization.
