This event is being put on by BSAM in partnership with BAND Gallery, First Nation House of University of Toronto, along with various departments of University of Toronto.

Black Speculative Arts Movement Toronto 2017 (#BSAMToronto2017) convention is a community gathering that is focused on a Toronto/ Canadian centered dialogue around the improvement of Black and Afrocentric presence in Speculative and Science Fiction in all creative forms and outlets. It is an unique opportunity for professional creatives who work within the field to come together share and inspire with other artists, art lovers and the general public. The aim is to create an experience that can educate, elevate and evolve the black art industry in the city and country. This year BSAM Toronto is adding Indigenous futurities to the convention, in hopes that it will begin to foster relationships between Afro and Indigenous futurists so that we may build together.

The convention will include keynote speakers,panel discussions, interactive installations, film screening, vending from a vast amount of comics, artisans, art merchants, live performances, social activism, live performances, cosplay comic book centered seminars and hands on workshops.
