Over the past year, Artist (and our amazing team member) Eman Elkadri has been working on a comic series about the experiences of racialized youth living in Canada. Join us as we launch and exhibit her work.
You can expect to see 40 unique comics about microaggressions, hear from Eman about her inspiration, as well as hear from some of the youth she worked with, plus learn more about what you can do. We will also be launching the Race Issues publication (thanks to a partnership with ActionDignity Youth PLACE Program). This is a free event that is open to all ages. The launch will take place on Thursday January 3 at The New Gallery (208 Centre Street South Calgary) at 6:30pm. Refreshments will be served during the launch.
The exhibit will continue during January 4 and 5 (12pm - 6pm).
We would like to thank The New Gallery for their support and allowing us to use their space. This project has been created in partnership with Canadian Cultural Mosaic Foundation and ActionDignity Youth PLACE Program.
