In 1972, the Aboriginal Tent Embassy was established on the parliamentary lawns in Canberra to challenge the status, treatment, and rights of Aboriginal people in Australia. As a direct quotation of this activist strategy of protest, lumbung artist Richard Bell’s own Embassy (2013–) is a public space for imagining and articulating alternate futures and reflecting on or retelling stories of oppression and displacement. Each activation of Embassy brings together artists, thinkers, and guests invited by Richard Bell to discuss issues and struggles they find most significant in their localities and socio-political contexts.
