WorkInCulture stands with the Black community in the US, Canada, and across the world. We stand with Black artists, creatives, cultural workers and community members. 

We acknowledge that it is not enough to share a black square and say Black Lives Matter, but to do the work of unlearning anti-black racism and understanding that this is a systemic and institutional issue.

We acknowledge that #TheShowMustBePaused #BlackOutTuesday goes beyond June 2, 2020. It is about educating ourselves on ways to support systemic reform for the future.

It’s about uplifting the voices of Black people and the community. It's about how we can support and influence a change in policies, laws and systems that negatively impact the lives of Black people.

WorkInCulture will continue to do this work internally and as we collaborate with partners in the arts, cultural and creative sector. 

Visit the following resources for ways to help, donate and support the Black Lives Matter movement:


About the photograph: Africville National Historic Site of Canada is a site of remembrance for Halifax’s African Canadian community. Once the location of a historic Black community, the houses were demolished in the 1960s and the land converted into municipally owned Seaview Park. (Parks Canada)

Why Africville: Instead of using a black square as part of the #blackouttuesday that happened on June, 2, 2020, we selected a photograph of Africville to highlight Black Canadian history and an example of anti-black racism.

What happened to Regis was a tragedy. Movements like these aren't established for violence, nor revenge, nor strife, but for preventing similar happenings in the future.

I am a big supporter of any minority group. Why can't some people understand that no matter what race or colour you are, everyone is still human and has equal rights. I do hope the situation gets better soon.

Look how the tables have turned. This BLM movement has made them feel invulnerable. It's the Asians that are being terrorized now. What a shame.

In today's world, if we all are able to respect and know about other cultures, and respect their values and beliefs, life would be easier for most of us, and we can learn a lot of good things from each other.

I might have to also do this at home for a do it yourself version. Maybe I'll change a little bit but I'll copy some of your tips. It may take me a little while to finish and perfect it but I am willing to learn. Well the process is always the dirtiest but I think it would all be worth it.
