Support Artists of Color. Support Multicultural Art. Alberta Street has always honored a commitment to all kinds of expression by all types of artists, musicians, performers. #LastThursday 2021 continues our community’s commitment to showcasing & promoting art & culture in all its forms by people who have been traditionally marginalized by white, western platforms. “Multicultural art plays a critical role in sending messages from other points of view, foster critical consciousness, and question power structures” – Pepe LeMoko, Blind Insect Gallery.
