What is this?

The Black Mosaic is a free community-based, peer-support project stemming from the Creativity Everything lab. This virtual hub is for Black people in Toronto and surrounding areas to come together and share creative works. Through bi-weekly sessions, we shall talk about, and exchange feedback on projects or ideas we are currently working on or hoping to get started — without the pressure to showcase “finished” work.

How does it work?

Group Support: Through themed Zoom meetings, individuals will have the opportunity to talk about and share works-in-progress, aspirations, and frustrations, in a group setting. This is a great way to connect with other Black creatives in and around Toronto!

One-To-One Support: For those who prefer one-to-one support, they can sign up for a slot to share in a more private setting. 

End Of Season Exhibition: Participants can submit audio, video or JPEG files of works in progress to be compiled in the End of Season Exhibition — which will be a virtual zine.

  • Art has always been part of the Black liberation struggle. I am always happy to see these types of community art projects.
