Tyler J Stewart is a curator, writer, scholar and consultant of settler descent, living and working in the area known as Sikohkotoki (Lethbridge, AB) in Blackfoot territory (also part of Treaty 7 territory, the traditional lands of the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot), Nakoda (Stoney), and Tsuut’ina). Working across sectors from music to museums to magazines, he is interested in fostering multi-disciplinary collaboration to inspire new events and experiences that encourage participation, and are meaningful to the communities from which they originate. His current research focuses on the deconstruction and analysis of how sound functions as a disciplinary sensory paradigm within the ongoing structure of settler-colonialism in Canada.

His curatorial work includes projects with the Southern Alberta Art Gallery, the National Music Centre, and the Galt Museum & Archives, and his writing has been published in outlets such as Galleries West, BeatRoute, LUMA, and Canadian Cycling Magazine. He has provided consulting services for a variety of non-profit organizations including Wide Skies Music & Arts Festival, Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden, and the Alberta Museums Association, among others.
