In Fall 2019, Nia Centre for the Arts invited The Power Plant to partner in a call for proposals for the creation of a video-essay. The project, A Decade in Review, draws upon themes and moments of relevance to experiences of Blackness within a Canadian context over the past decade. This commission by Matthew Progress is unique for its critical exploration of some of the moments that defined a decade, as well as its potential to challenge, inspire and educate audiences. This partnership supports Black-Canadian artistic expression and production by highlighting the cultural, political and intellectual contributions of Afro diasporic communities in Toronto. The screening will be followed by a discussion with Matthew Progress, filmmaker Cazhhmere and public speaker Camille Dundas.
