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.

Sisterhood at the MMFA
Since 2018, the MMFA has collaborated with the Never Was Average collective as part of the Sisterhood at the MMFA. These bimonthly events are an opportunity for people to discuss, share and talk openly with guest artists about the role of culture and the arts in the public space as well as about diversity and the representation of women and racialized people in art.
