About 5Artist 1Love

5Artists 1Love is an annual Black History Month event that provides Edmonton residents the opportunity to celebrate the cultural mosaic within the city’s Black community. It explores the rich history of the African diaspora through art, music, dance, and poetry with the goal to help established and emerging artists further develop Black arts and culture and to celebrate the accomplishments of Black Canadians.

The AGA will be hosting the 2017 main exhibit with a satellite show presented at the Chateau LaCombe as part of the annual celebration of black arts within our community.
