Please join us for an art night experience with Somali Canadian Society of Calgary and Soomaal House of Art.
Soomaal House, in partnership with The Bows, will debut a visual art exhibition in Calgary in the summer of 2023 with Khadijah Muse, Mohamud Mumin and Kaamil A. Haider. Working closely with The Bows and Alberta Somali community members, the artists will create artworks for the exhibition and be involved in community outreach events with audiences and artists in Calgary and Edmonton during their fall trip. This collaborative project will serve as a bridge and provide an opportunity to highlight the presence of Somali culture and heritage in the arts and artmaking with shared meanings between the Somalis in Minnesota and Alberta.
Soomaal House of Art is an artists collective that provides an artistic community and support through fellowships, programming and exhibitions, studio and gallery space for Somali artists in Minnesota and around the world.
Please visit our linktree on Saturday for a link to a livestream of the event if you are unable to attend in person.
