Please join us for the afrOURban art exhibit in Montréal on the 28th July!

|About afrOURban|
The afrOURban collective is comprised of people who have made it their calling to document culture, architecture, urban spaces on the continent. This exhibit will be an exchange of experiences and ideas, about Africa by Africans. 

The aim of their collective in curating the exhibit is to document and express the many characters of the metropole on the continent and how these inform culture or are informed by it. Exhibited work will take the form of a variety of mediums and subjects, through this we wish to engage with the diverse experience and interpretations we have about ourselves. The exhibit will provide a specific space for the facilitation of discussion and documentation of afrOURbanity.
