Black History Month – Art Exhibit and Contest presented by the Newmarket African Caribbean Canadian Association (NACCA) in partnership with the Town of Newmarket 

The Black Family: Source of Perseverance and Resilience       

Talented artists create their interpretation of "The Black Family: Source of Perseverance and Resilience." NACCA is pleased to create a platform for this talented group of individuals to express their artistic vision and positionality as black artists. This year’s exhibit is The Black Family: Source of Perseverance and Resilience. For some, the task of executing this particular composition might garner a reflection inwards; whilst others may decide to look at a specific subject to be inspired. The support structure and relationships formed out of strong family bonds make us stronger and are one aspect of success in navigating the complexities of society’s racial inequities. In addressing the Black family as a source of perseverance and resilience, we celebrate all Black families. Recognition is given to Black families which comprise a variety of identities.
