What is the CELAFI25 collection?


The celafi25.com initiative and collection was born out of online search in 2014 for evidence of the mammoth and purposeful undertakings by Canadian Artist Network: Black Artist In Action (CAN: BAIA). Its flagship events, the CELAFI 1992 and CELAFI 1997 Conferences and Festivals, whose objectives were to unite and showcase the wealth of Canada's National Black community of artist practitioners and their creations. The events were groundbreaking at the time, and surely, but sadly, we found little to nothing of this national/international diaspora’s artistic perspective online, and relatively little reference to the hundreds of Canadians and their International counterparts who participated in these two extraordinary events. This realization strengthened our resolve to preserve the legacy of this rich historical and cultural endeavor. To help visitors explore celafi25 website contents at-a-glance: 1.
