Join us for the June 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 Timiro Mohamed to lead a virtual tour of 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.
Timiro Mohamed is an award-winning Somali-Canadian spoken word poet whose practice is rooted in responsible storytelling. She has competed nationally at the Canadian Festival of Spoken word and is the co-author of the chapbook Water. Timiro is the former City of Edmonton Youth Poet Laureate, a poetry editor for The Drinking Gourd Magazine, and the co-creator of the virtual open mic series The Chatroom.
