WELCOME TO BLACK FUTURES AT GEORGE BROWN COLLEGE
We want to acknowledge the history of the Black community while celebrating the resilience and excellence that the community has shown over time. To do this, February marked the beginning of a celebration that centred the conversation on how we foster and promote Black futures while creating community for all. While Black Futures Month is now over, the work we're doing and the content and the resources we created continue to live on.

The Virtual GBC Art Gallery
This digital exhibition honours and celebrates the creativity and ingenuity of self-identifying black students, alumni and affiliates of George Brown College. Through innovation, creativity, storytelling, and music, these artists, creators, storytellers and musicians are participating in this moment to share their brilliance and provide us with a moment to relish the joy that is us.
We caught up with four George Brown College alumni who, since graduating, continue to create, innovate, and inspire while pursuing entrepreneurial goals.
These alumni are making change today with an eye on the future.
