  • As a part of our Black on Campus series, we have @yusrakhogali leading a workshop on misogynoir in activism. We hear many stating to protect and support Black women, but we still see few doing this, including within activism. Come and learn about what can and should be done to truly stand against misogynoir. This is an event that centres the experiences and voices of Black girls, women, and femme folks and BLC-Ryerson will ensure that this is maintained.

Food will be provided, and please arrive on time as best you can! If you have accessibility requirements please email us at blcryerson@gmail.com

  • In honour of Black History Month, The Rose Underground Presents:

Black Canvas: Reclaiming the Ink

An intimate discussion with 3 Black tattoo artists and their experiences within the tattoo industry. We want to get at the root of what it looks like to be a Black tattoo artist in the industry, the art of tattooing Black skin, the perception of Black people with tattoos, how we create space for ourselves and so much more. 
The event will also feature a tattoo special by Vegas ink offering flash pieces at discounted rates as well as a 2x2 inch tattoo special for $50 (limit 2 per person). For those interested in purchasing a tattoo there is a deposit of $25  needed to secure the appointment. To secure an appointment please buy a ticket on eventbrite. Upon confirmation you will be sent an email confirming your time slot which will be chosen at random.

Event is $5-15 PWYC
*Tickets can be bought on eventbrite or at the door. No one will be turned away by lack of funds*

Schedule:

7:00pm- 7:30pm : Arrival/Food
7:35pm- 8:15pm : Discussion with Brittany/ Humble Bee Tattoos,  Thaila/ Vegas ink & Anwar/ Kush Concepts
8:20pm-11:30pm : Tattooing by Vegas (for those who have set up appointments)

Food provided by Comfort Cuisine 
Vegetarian Halal food *BACKGROUND*

In the last decade the Tattoo industry has become one of the fastest growing industries as the artform has become more widely accepted by the general society. Unlike the stereotypes of tattoos from the past, tattoos are now seen as a valid expression of experiences and identity. Just this year the AGO held a featured exhibit showcasing the historic presence of tattooing and how it has expanded throughout the years in a contemporary context.

Unfortunately, tattooing is riddled with archaic beliefs that has marginalized many groups of people. Black folks specifically have been excluded from the industry in a very particular way. Black tattoo artists experience anti-Black racism on multiple levels. They are often excluded forcing an environment of isolation.
