Black History Month

Black History Month 2024

This group exhibition will feature artwork created by regional Black youth ages 13 – 18 under the guidance of Toronto-based artist Ashante Blackwood. The art will speak to everyone about their challenges and achievements of being Black in Simcoe County and the inner power of their voice. Organized by Making Change, in partnership with MacLaren Art Centre, Bradford West Gwillimbury Public Library and Shak’s World. Both gala events have been made possible by Alectra Utilities sponsorship.

A special thank you to our incredible sponsor Alectra Utilities for making this program possible.
