Mentorship Programs

Pairing emerging artists with established professionals in their field can provide invaluable guidance and support.

Exhibition Opportuntites

Providing spaces for artists to display and sell their work can help them gain exposure and income.

Canadian Black
Artists United

Our purpose is to advance the creative contributions of Canadian Black visual artists, literary artists, and performing and musical artists, by engaging them in collaborations, and professional development activities: exhibitions, performances, networking, workshops, residencies, and cultural exchange programs locally, nationally and internationally. International Black Artists and art patrons across the globe will have the opportunity to come to Winnipeg to see Canadian Black Artists during residencies and the annual juried exhibition. This will further promote the excellent work of Canadian Arts in general.


CBAU is a toolkit and a meeting place for Black artists in Canada, providing logistical advice, resources, and local, national, and international opportunities to support their careers and contribute meaningfully to the landscape of Canadian art.


Created by and for Canadian Black artists and artisans from various disciplines, CBAU unites people to collaborate, innovate, create, and present their talents locally, nationally, and globally.


Be Impactful, Innovative, Progressive, and Excellent.
