Feb 24, '23

7:00pm - 9:00pm

February is Black History Month, and to celebrate, WAG–Qaumajuq and Manitoba Music are sharing a night of music brought to you by BPM.

The special event will feature sets from acclaimed local artists JayWood, Keisha Booker, and Nestor Wynrush and will be hosted by Free Press journalist and writer, Julia Simone-Rutgers. The evening will be intimate and interactive, allowing the artists to express themselves through stripped-down, visceral performances that will address identity, and community and celebrate the African Diaspora.

The performances will be followed by a short mixer, with a DJ and drinks.

 

The event is the first in an ongoing partnership between WAG-Qaumajuq & BPM and made possible by FACTOR.
