GLAM Collective (Dr. Carla Taunton, Dr. Julie Nagam, Dr. Heather Igloliorte) is a collective of scholars who work on and through Indigenous theory and methodologies, public art, performance art, digital technologies, and curatorial and artistic practices that engage with space and place. GLAM Collective was founded 2018, but its members have more than a decade of prior experience of collaboration through publications, exhibitions, research-creation projects, presentations, symposia, workshops and other initiatives. Notably, in 2016 GLAM co-edited the special issue PUBLIC 54: Indigenous Art: New Media and the Digital, and throughout 2018 and 2019 they co-curated the three-part, nation-wide artist incubator and public art exhibition series, Memory Keepers, in the cities of Montreal, Charlottetown, and Halifax, as well as Gathering Across Moana (2019) in Toronto. GLAM Collective’s project, The Space Between Us, explores how digital and new media art created through innovative incubator labs, workshops, makerspaces and symposia might create new paradigms for community engagement extending to remote and rural communities both nationally and abroad.
