Black History Month: three cultural activities in Montreal North
The program gives way to music, with works by Joseph André and a rap therapy workshop .
Black History Month is launched in Montreal North. Here are three suggestions for cultural activities to do this week.
Since mid-January, the works of a skewer of artists are exhibited at the library of the Cultural and Community House.
In particular, we can immerse ourselves in the musical universe of the paintings of the painter of Haitian origin Joseph André, also curator of the exhibition.
Gerda Crepsac, Eneida Hernandez, Marie-Lucienne Marcelin, Frantz Louis and Garfield Morgan are also part of this exhibition organized by Espaces d'Expressions et de création, an organization whose mission is to put diversity in the spotlight.
As artists, our works are our contribution to Black History Month.
Joseph André, artist and director of the organization Espaces d'Expressions et de création
Until March 6 at the library of the Cultural and Community House
