Featuring Artists, Events, Organizations, And Social Justice Resources
Every February, people and organizations across Canada participate in Black History Month. It’s an opportunity to focus on the legacy and contributions of Black Canadians in our society. The theme for Black History Month 2022 is “February and Forever: Celebrating Black History today and every day,” a reminder that supporting and including Black voices and Black creators is something we can do every day, and not just during the shortest month of the year.
During last year’s Black History Month, EC3 launched Spotlight on Local Black Artists, presenting profiles of Black artists living and working in Peterborough. These six profiles were shared on social media and have a permanent home on our website. This is an ongoing project for EC3 and a resource for anyone looking to learn about, program, work with and support Black artists in our community. This program continued throughout 2021, and will return with more artist profiles again in 2022.
To mark Black History Month, EC3 has put together a list of resources to help us honour and inform ourselves about the legacy of Black Canadians, to support Black causes and Black creators, and to celebrate some of the fantastic art being created by Black artists in Peterborough and across Canada.
We encourage everyone to take a deep dive into some of these great websites, books, documentaries, and events: click HERE to access the resource list.
