Celebrate Black History Month

February 9, 2017 6:00 pm to 11:45 pm. To celebrate black history month and to warm up the month of February, Bravo–east and the artists of pentadécagone invite you to an African party (panel discussion in French, food, music and more).Five Canadian artists paired with five artists from Francophone Africa from the pentadécagone art project invite you to an evening of discussion on the African values versus Canadian values. Following the discussion, there will be a party to warm up the Canadian winter.The ten artists drew on their respective traditions and origins in order to allow the public here and abroad to answer five questions that run through the story, and who live like knots of contradictions. The content of the videos references both Francophone Ontario and Francophone Africa. The African ideas refer to French-Canadian ideas and vice-versa. The five pairs of artists are composed of:Luce Marquis and Aminata FarmoDo animals have rights? A vision of the Fulani people towards cattle and a Canadian vision on antispecism.Doris Lamontagne and Komi SeshieA critical look at the sacred: Christian amulets and African charms (gris-gris).Laurent Vaillancourt and Father Cyrille Rigobert OgbaboMission: the "little brother" Canadian in Africa, the African priest on mission in Canada.Raymond Aubin and Zana SoroValues bequeathed as a legacy.Nancy Brandsma and Kalula KalambayThe third age: the elderly viewed by Canada and Africa through the theme of abandonment.Evening ProgramAnimator: Yawo Élome6 pm to 6 :30 pm : projection of digital videos6:30 pm to 7:15 pm: discussion panel with the artists and the public7:15 p to 7:45 pm: the artists have the pleasure of serving you food prepared by them!7:45 pm to midnight: Music and artistic performances by DJ Simon Labelle and invited artists: performance by Aminata Farmo, poem by Kalula Kalambay, slam poetry by Alex Deschênes and other surprise invitees.. 67 Nicholas StreetOttawa, ON K1N 7B9..
