CELEBRATING AFRICAN IDENTITY
HISTORY & LEGACY
CONTENT PREVIEW: SATURDAY, JULY 1, 2017
CELAFI 1992 & 1997 Conference / Festivals in Celebration of African Identity brought together academics, artists, advocates and patrons from across Canada and around the world to present, and challenge each other in public discussion and pass on their métier in hands-on workshops.
The landmark conference and festivals dug deep into the roots of Africa art aesthetics, and emanated the many thriving branches as they sprang forth and blossomed in every art form around the world.
Twenty five years later we celebrate in conjunction with Canada's 150th with a "preview" of the CELAFI'25 Archive & Repository Legacy Initiative, a rich collection of over 500 artifacts, and more than 1000 artist participants from CELAFI 1992 & CELAFI 1997 Conference & Festival.
