Massimadi Fondation

The Massimadi Foundation has a mandate of inclusion in the Montreal and Quebec artistic landscape. Its mission is to perpetuate, disseminate, and produce works and cultural knowledge from LGBTQ+ and Afro-descendant artists. This mission is accomplished through various projects, the main one being the annual Massimadi Afro LGBTQ+ Arts and Film Festival, the only festival in Quebec dedicated entirely to the imaginaries of black queer culture from here and elsewhere.
