AGO Schools: Celebrating Black Creatives

JK – Gr. 3

Join our Art Educators in conversation with a spoken word artist and musician. With roots in oral traditions and performances, students will explore elements of the spoken word and music with I.M.F and Raffiki, inspired by the AGO’s collection.

I.M.F which stands for “In My Feelings” is a singer songwriter who is forever in her feelings. Canadian-Rwandese, born and raised in Canada I.M.F was influenced by Neo-soul and R&B music. Music is her first love and passion as she’s been performing and singing since she was a child. I.M.F uses her music to express herself and form connections with the outside world in various forms. Music is her therapy, and she hopes it could be yours too.

Raffiki is an artist who dabbles in the mediums of sound. A music producer, instrumentalist, and DJ. Raffiki loves all things music from your mainstream music, underground songs to classical compositions. Raffiki tries to incorporate all parts of music and sounds into his work. Kenyan born and Canadian raised Raffiki strives to incorporate the diversity in his life within his music. Music is his energy, and he hopes to bring it to you.
