Uproot YYC

Uproot YYC is a grassroots collective for and by artists of colour in the Calgary area. We are working to uproot systemic racism in the arts through community building, support, advocacy, uplift and amplifying the voices and work of artists of colour in the city. 

Uproot YYC is not a charity; funds raised by Uproot are used to provide artists of colour with the financial recognition they deserve for their creative endeavors. 

Uproot YYC is a visionary collective- we are non-hierarchical and queer positive. Our core decision-making body consists of three artists of colour, each bringing their own unique perspective and artistic specialities to the collective. ‘Artists of Colour’ includes Indigenous artists and multiracial artists. 

We cannot do our work without you. If you like what we do and support our vision, please donate or volunteer! Donations and/or inquiries can be made to
