We believe that knowledge is the foundation for capacity. Thus, our actions aim to construct a long-term continuous process to empower the immigrant and refugee artists´ community by developing community assets, abilities, and capacities.
Our actions are based on the following principles:
Our board structure works on a volunteer basis.
Our decision-making process is entirely grass roots under the form of assemblies, and every single member of Multicultural Artists´ Collective has agency in our decisions making processes.
There is no fee to be part of the collective; anybody who identifies as immigrant.
The current board members are: Aymara Alvarado Sanchez, Carmel Whittle, Edgar R. Hernandez, Lili Hozack, and Alejandro Salgado Cendales.
Who we are
We are a collective of immigrant/refugee artists coming from different disciplines, cultural backgrounds, gender/sex identities, age groups, incomes, nationhood, and nationalities living in Canada´s National Capital Region.
