Advisory Board

We are honoured to have established an Advisory Board of academics, community leaders, artists, and business minds from across Canada.


If you have connections or expertise in areas relevant to the project, such as the arts (fine arts, music, photography, or mixed-media), digital or physical publishing, and/or connections to Eritrean community organisations, we would love to connect with you. ​This is a unique opportunity to help create the first ever anthology documenting the history of Eritrean-Canadians, we are always looking for passionate individuals with a love for art, culture, history, storytelling, and community-building to help us execute it.
