The locations presented on the map represent a nuanced diversity of Black impact and contribution to the fabric of Greater Vancouver.

Through BlackArt Gastown's work, we share 10 Black BC residents and organizations shaping our communities through activism. We also show significant neighbourhoods and areas, including Vancouver parks celebrating contributions of Black residents.

BlackArt Gastown and the City of Vancouver would like to thank the Black History Month Event Planning Committee for their support and involvement in this project.
