Event⎢Artivism: The Power of Art in the Public Space

Sisterhood at the MMFA

As part of the Sisterhood at the MMFA series, the Montreal collective Never Was Average, in collaboration with the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA), invites you to join a conversation on Artivism: The Power of Art in the Public Space, on Saturday, September 12, at 1:30 p.m., via Zoom.

Open to all, this participatory event, hosted by Hanna Che and Harry Julmice, co-founders of Never Was Average, and by multidisciplinary visual artist Niti Marcelle Mueth, will feature artists and stakeholders from Montreal's arts and culture community. They will discuss art activism and political art, with reference to the Black Lives Matter fresco, produced last July on Ste-Catherine Street East to denounce the inequalities that can affect black communities in Quebec.
