Manitoba Music and Winnipeg Art Gallery (WAG)-Qaumajuq are celebrating Black music makers with a series of free concerts and mixers in the iconic gallery space. The partnership was launched in February with a packed Black History Month event, laying the foundation for the ongoing community-building events through the BPM program.

The next event will return to WAG-Qaumajuq on Friday, November 24, and feature sets from post-punk act Fold Paper, saxophonist and vocalist INGIA, and DJ DMIXX. The evening will be intimate and interactive, allowing the artists to express themselves through stripped-down, visceral performances that will address identity and community, and celebrate the African Diaspora.
There'll be a mixer throughout the night for Black music makers as well as local music companies, labels, venues, and festivals looking to make deeper connections with the Black music community in Manitoba. Meetups for artists and music entrepreneurs are core to BPM’s community-building focus, offering an opportunity to share ideas, professional needs and barriers, and make vital career connections.
Join us for great music and people plus some delicious food!
