SPECTRA is a recurring Arts Showcase and Skillsharing event series that intends to uplift the voices, talents, and joys of our vibrant intersecting QTBIPOC+ communities. Through SPECTRA we are committing to creating spaces for joy, intergenerational continuity, and community action as avenues of resistance against racism, abuse of power, and the intertwined ongoing systemic violence against racialized people at the intersections of marginalization in amiskwaciy-wâskahikan, also known as Edmonton.
SPECTRA is a source of light and a space for exploration as we continue to build the communities that we are proud to be a part of. Each month we will be featuring a different artist, creative, or community organiser from our community and hosting a livestreamed arts showcase, workshop, panel or interview!
Note: All featured SPECTRA artists, creatives, and community organisers will be compensated through a $100 honorarium.
Through SPECTRA we hope to create a collection of online events and build an archive of community-made art, stories, and interviews that reflect the current state of QTBIPOC+ community here in amiskwaciy-wâskahikan.
