Get in the groove this 4/20 at your AGA. This far out bash is inspired by the original hipsters: beatniks, hep cats and cool kicks. Cop a performance, hang with some art or dance until it’s time to hit the pavement. 

Be dope, make the scene at the original hipster party.

La Connexional is a cultural collective that strives to showcase the talents and contributions of the African, Caribbean, and Latinx communities in Canada through a variety of mediums, while focusing on building capacity within these communities. These mediums serve to create spaces that encourage acceptance and understanding between these groups as well as within the greater Edmonton & Albertan community.
