Join us for a special screening of In The Black Canada: The Windsor Project. InTheBlack:Canada is an artist collective comprised of Nina Aning, Sonia Godding-Togobo, and Donna Paris. Through their work in media and education, the artists focused on the experience of being Black Canadian.
The Windsor Project features participants ranging in age from the mid-20s to the late 80s. And while each voice is distinct, a pattern emerges as participants describe their personal journeys; they speak about overcoming adversity, mourning loss, finding means to empowerment, expressing love for the city of Windsor—and their pride in being Canadian. This important work exemplifies the enormous range of image practices and expressive genres African Canadian artists employ in consideration of history, diversity and identity, both personally and collectively.
Join The Artists of Colour for a special screening of The Windsor Project from 5:30pm – 6pm, followed by a Community Conversation featuring the collective from 6:30pm – 7:15pm.
