Africville: A Spirit that Lives On – A Reflection Project

MSVU Art Gallery, Seton Academic Centre, 166 Bedford Highway, Halifax, Nova Scotia , Canada

About

In 1989, MSVU Art Gallery, the Black Cultural Centre for Nova Scotia, and the Africville Genealogical Society collaborated on the exhibition Africville: A Spirit That Lives On.


The exhibition, catalogue, and symposium celebrated the legacy and spirit of Africville and set the benchmark for collaborative, community driven exhibitions. Today, on the 30th anniversary of the exhibition, the collaborators have reunited and are joined by the Africville Museum, to create a project looking back at the original exhibition and take the opportunity to reflect on what has happened since.

Information about the project will be added and updated here on an ongoing basis.
