Campaign Description

Celebrate Black History Month with Calgary's Sankofa Arts and Music Foundation! Our campaign showcases the work of African artisans along with artwork from some of our youth members.

Who We Are

Sankofa was founded in 2015 to address a lack of infrastructure and support for Black youth in Calgary. Sankofa has established a record of longstanding relationships with Black youth and their families around cultural and social projects. Sankofa is dedicated to building and supporting a healthy and caring community whilst creating strategies to address and combat social and economic barriers that limit youth opportunities. 

Our BoostR Campaign

Proceeds collected through this campaign will be used towards Sankofa’s building fund. This will secure a much needed permanent home for the organization in order to guarantee Sankofa’s work in reshaping social relations so that all young people may reach their full potential whilst sustaining the well-being of the community.
