February is Black History Month, making it a particularly important time to raise your awareness and join the discussion about the innumerable contributions that Black Canadians have made to Canada and to Vancouver.

The theme for this year’s Black History Month is “The Future is Now,” a call to recognize and honour the important cultural work and mobilizing initiatives that are being done by Black Canadians to effect positive change.

While many 2021 events are being held virtually in light of the pandemic, the energy is still the same: one premised on education, celebration, and transformation.

Vancouver Art Gallery Launches Online Series

Art is what has the power to connect us all right now; whether it’s a documentary about a Lisa Frank-styling tiger-exploiting man from Florida that captivates a generation for a hot minute, or performances that are translated to multiple languages for hundreds of years or mosaics preserved through millennia. These varied and reflective moments, put together by artists, are what make us feel, collectively, as people, across space and time.

The Vancouver Art Gallery has launched a series where we can connect with art and each other every Tuesday and Friday. Through live, interactive talks with guests from local and international arts communities, our living rooms become a space of discussion, discovery, and inspiration.
