Expressions of History: Celebrating Black Art and Culture in Edmonton

“Expressions of Identity” is a workshop designed to celebrate the rich diversity and creativity of black artists and culture, whilst also looking back at Edmonton’s expansive history. Participants will create a painting or collage that integrates historical Edmonton or famous past events in the area, with their own culture and what Edmonton embodies in present times.

Workshop Activities:

Artist Spotlight Presentations: Begin the workshop by showcasing the work of prominent black artists from various disciplines. Discuss their impact on art and culture, highlighting their unique styles, themes, and contributions.

Edmonton Showcase: A series of famous events, historical images and inspiring people from the area will then be shared. This includes 20th century Edmonton, and cultural events such as Edmonton Carnival, or Bob Marley performing in the once Sundown Theatre.

Interactive Project: Participants will then create their own painting or collage depicting one of Edmonton’s historical events or scenes, but this will be reimagined with bright colours and influences from participants’ own heritage. Old photos of Edmonton, news articles and cultural textures will be provided as guests create a multi-media depiction of vintage Edmonton vs what Edmonton is now.

Cultural Showcase and Celebration: Conclude the workshop with a showcase and celebration, where participants can share their artwork and reflections with the community.
