Black History in Alberta

The collection hosts ongoing work and welcomes contributions through community voices and work.

Join us as we continue to find ways to examine, discuss, share, celebrate, and amplify Black voices in order to learn and challenge our understandings of race, racialization, and racial identity in the context of colonial Canadian histories.

Festival City

Perhaps it’s the climate or maybe it’s the community, but Edmonton hosts over 50 festivals every year! In this collection, uncover the histories behind these annual events and explore their significance to Edmonton. 

Women’s Histories

The perspectives and stories of women have often been downplayed or excluded from representations of history. In this collection, discover parts of Edmonton’s heritage history by exploring the stories of women. 

We continue to learn and grow together as we build this collection to better amplify the voices and stories of diverse women.

Indigenous Perspectives

Indigenous Peoples have lived, travelled, and cared for the land now known as Edmonton since time immemorial. Their deep seated past and resiliency continues to shape the history of this place. In this collection, uncover Indigenous perspectives historically excluded from the story of Edmonton. 

ECAMP commits to the continued work needed to grow this collection, with future collaborations that will increase and amply the stories of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit communities in and around Treaty 6.
