The Black Healing Centre (BHC) is an initiative that aims to open a physical healing space for Black people in Tio’tia:ke Montreal. The Black Healing Centre’s core mission is to create an accessible and safer space for Black people to gather, connect, and heal. Our promise is to create an intentional space for us, by us.
Our project, Healing Through Art Days will help us demonstrate the value of our work to funders and our community. The mental health of most Black people is negatively affected by the lack of community and having to navigate daily incidents of racism and microaggressions on a daily basis. The goal of Healing Through Art Days is to curate a safer healing space for Black people to help alleviate social isolation, and symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder by creating a communal space where people can come and engage in self and communal healing once a month from January to June 2022.
