Standing on Their Shoulders event this Sunday (Feb 21)

C-Uni-T is excited to support this project out of the BCRC (Black Community Resource Centre). Over the past year, the Standing on their Shoulders team has engaged a phenomenal group of youth in the creative direction of 20 short artistic videos that highlight the Black history of the Little Burgundy neighbourhood. Each youth participant used their own method (spoken word, dance, interview, visual art, and a combination of the above) to shed light on stories such as the Domestic Workers scheme, the Montreal chapter of the UNIA, and the Free Lance (the first Black newspaper in Quebec). The videos were shot and edited by the amazing, Burgundy-based audio-visual coop, Great Things Studios.

The event will be held this sunday, february 21, at Georges Vanier Cultural Centre, 2450, rue Workman, from 3-5pm.

Hope to see you there!
