The CC Awards primarily aims to recognize the (creative) talents and contributions of people of African, Black, Caribbean and Latin (ABCL) descent from Alberta To The World. The CCA will focus on recognizing the youth and changemakers within Alberta's creative communities.

We encourage the nominations of creatives who identify within ABCL and BIPOC communities. Equitable representation is at the core of what we do within La Connexional, and these awards will be given to those that demonstrate awareness and amplification of our communities. 🤎

Join us for a bespoke evening where you will get to enjoy food, socialize, dance and escape the cold while celebrating and rejoice in the beginning of 2023 🥳.

Ultimately, the Creative Citizen Awards and New Year Gala aims to:

  • Recognize the amazing Albertan-based talents that continue to enrich the cultural richness and diversity of our province.
  • Bring together creatives, community builders, actors, doers and enthusiasts all in one place to connect and network with the intention of creating long-lasting relationships and future collaborations.
  • Stimulating, co-creating and facilitating partnerships between Albertan-based creatives and organizations.
  • Increasing a sense of solidarity and connectedness between all diversities and communities in Edmonton.
