The Black Daddies Clubco-presents The Black Families Un-Conference is a three-day gathering for families who identify as Black or Racialized to take part in a camping experience for the entire family that will take place in one of Tim Hortons Camps in Ontario, at no cost to the families that attend.
The idea behind the Black Families Un-Conference is to create positive memories and experiences for these families (parents or guardians and their children) as a whole in a safe environment that they may not be able to afford. The Black Daddies Club (BDC) over the 16 years of operating in the Greater Toronto Area, has created programs which promote creating positive memorable memories within green spaces for Black families and their allies.
This initiative is a collaboration between Justice Fund, Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCHC), Tim Hortons Camp and The Black Daddies Club (BDC). The dates and location of the Black Families Un-Conference will be at a Tim Hortons Camp in Ontario will take place on Friday, November 3rd 2023 to Sunday, November 5th, 2023
The Black Daddies Club is teaming up with Jah Grey, the founder and director of Black Men’s Therapy Fund for an incredible video installation that will capture the captivating stories of Black men over the age of 40, encouraging men to reclaim the best part of themselves, while also addressing the most common concerns that Black men face when it comes to love. This project will explore the challenges and barriers that Black men often encounter in the pursuit of love, shedding light on these issues to create a transformative conversation.
Please join us in reclaiming your personal power, navigating the complexities of love, and finding inspiration in the stories of others. Together, we can break through the barriers and redefine the way we approach love and relationships.
This project is a part of the Black Daddies Club’s 16th year anniversary event, “Finding a Partner After 40: A Conversation with Black Folks.” Mark your calendars for Saturday, November 25th, 2023, because this event will be held at the amazing Evergreen Brick Works in Toronto, Canada.
