Celebrate African Heritage Month at the ROM! This 90-minute special event explores the ideas of cultural identity and belonging through the special exhibition Here We Are Here: Black Canadian Contemporary Art and a creative open-ended making activity.

During this 90-minute special event, students will participate in:

  • Guided Tour (45 minutes): What is the Black Canadian presence and history in our country? Explore these ideas, and the issues of belonging, in Here We Are Here: Black Canadian Contemporary Art through the contemporary works of nine African Canadian artists. Challenge yourself to think differently about the deep-rooted histories and enduring presence of Black Canadians, gain a new and multifaceted understanding of Canada, through these unique and visually compelling installations.
  • Open Make Activity (45 minutes): Reflect on the ideas of cultural identity, belonging, and personal history in Canada to create your own contemporary art. Students will use arts and crafts materials to make artwork that interprets, communicates, and responds creatively to these complex ideas.
