In conjunction with Pamila Matharu’s exhibition, Where Were You in ‘92?, this online conversation brings together past co-founders, guest artists, and cultural workers of Fresh Arts, a Black artist-led program that was born of the protests in Toronto in 1992. While we honour the legacy of Fresh Arts, its impact on public arts programming, we also pay homage to the history of Black feminist citation practices, and to the spaces created for intergenerational knowledge sharing and exchange.
