Black Conversations: #BlackAbundance20 is a one-day experimental conference that focuses on creativity, interpersonal connections, and well-being organized as part of Black History Month. This conference aims to bring together creatives, artists, entrepreneurs and community leaders whose work will inspire the next generation of culture shifters.
The goal behind this experience is to create a space where participants will be invited to share personal histories and exchange on a variety of topics through visual and interactive art installations. They will also be called to develop a mentality of abundance that will help them bring their career, passion or personal life to the next level. This is a unique occasion to discover and meet inspiring young people from afro-descendent communities who contribute to changing Montreal’s culture and community.
Opening its doors for the event, the Black Market boutique will present visitors with a variety of products from businesses founded by young entrepreneurs.
