Episode 17: Is It Cultural Exchange OR Appropriation? – Dialogue & Debate
October 18, 2017
Broadly speaking, the term cultural appropriation focuses on instances where elements from a minority culture are adopted by a dominant cultural and re-used outside of their traditional, historical, and native cultural contexts. In this episode of the I Am Interchange podcast, a diverse panel of artists, activists & entrepreneurs examine whether cultural exchange can happen in a way that honors unique cultures and identities, or if the history of using other cultures for financial gain makes it more difficult for an exchange to happen in an intentional and respectful manner.
