Association of African Canadian Artists
2016 marks our 20th year of presenting ART produced by African Canadian Artists.
Our COLOURblind Exhibits!
Formerly the "Black History Through Art Exhibition" presented by the Canadian Human Rights Commission.
In the early years the exhibition took place during February "Black History Month" in the lobby of the Canadian Human Rights Commission building on the corner of Bloor and Church Street in Toronto. This modest display featured original art, inspired by themes of human rights and the African Canadian experience.
Driven by the enthusiasm of it's regular visitors and corporate sponsors, the exhibition has grown each year since its inception in 1996 - expending to include more artists, more works of art and more venues. To meet the growing demands, the exhibits are on display thought-out the year in various locations in the GTA.
In 2005, marking our 10th anniversary, the association was registered as a
not-for-profit organization and under went a total transformation. We
infused it with new life, vibrancy and excitement and renamed our exhibition COLOURblind.
