Happy February to all! I hope that you are ready to make some new discoveries, because although it may be the shortest month, a tall order of fascinating cultural activities awaits you.
The festivities begin with a celebration of Black History Month, a perfect opportunity to recall and reflect on some of our forgotten past. This year's event was launched two weeks ago with spokespersons, comedian Dorothy Rhau and actor Benz Antoine.
For this 21st edition, Georges Laoun Opticien is once again a proud participant. We are extremely pleased to align ourselves with Vues d'Afrique as well as to offer up our shop as a canvas for talented local artists. This month, discover them through a group exhibition, vernissage and performance celebrating Black History Month.
Check out our Facebook page regularly, where we will be sure to introduce (or reintroduce) you to the cultural offerings of our world, and of Montreal—this beautiful city that is ours.
