#tour

Join us for the July edition of our Community Tour Series which invites a new speaker each month to lead a tour of a current exhibition, giving our audience a unique perspective on the artwork on display. This month we are thrilled to welcome Anna Edwards the President of Cariwest Festival to lead a virtual tour of the exhibition Black Every Day curated by Darren W. Jordan.

This exhibition marks the 15th anniversary of 5 Artists 1 Love, an organization dedicated to promoting the vibrancy of Edmonton's African Canadian communities.

Anna Edwards is the President of Cariwest Festival, one of Edmonton’s most colorful and vibrant festivals! Introduced more than 30 years ago in Edmonton by the Western Carnival Development Association (WCDA), Cariwest provides a platform through which to share popular Caribbean music, cuisine and carnival culture to Western Canada.

The 2021 Cariwest Festival will take place August 6 - 8 in downtown Edmonton. The three-day event will be a virtual experience hosted on Facebook and Youtube, featuring a cultural showcase from the Caribbean.

For our July Community tour you can join us in the gallery or online. If joining us in person this community tour is included in admission to the AGA. Read more about the exhibition and the artists here. Register below.

#AGAlive is presented by the EPCOR Heart + Soul Fund and the Canada Council for the Arts
