#9: The 6 Key Elements of Curatorial Justice

In this episode, I am talking about the counter-hegemonic discourse and cultural practice known as curatorial justice: It's an invitation to re-think and radically change our approach to curating and programming based on a critical look at power imbalances, discrimination and marginalization in the film and festival industry. The six key elements of curatorial justice discussed here are: Equity, Inclusivity & Access, Ethical Representation, Authentic Authorship, Decolonization and Transparency & Accountability. Finally, I am sharing some of my experiences as a curator at international film festivals with you to provide insights into the different reactions one might encounter on the path for curatorial justice.
