Annick MF is a writer, media maker and community organizer based out of Tio’tia:ke (Montreal). In her creative and community work she explores the politics of race and gender that surround her body and communities on a daily. For her Master’s thesis, she unpacked racial experiences from her youth growing up in Montreal through a research-creation project called Understanding Blackness in Montreal: A Toolkit for Engaging Youth in Critical Dialogue Around Race, which led to the Mapping Blackness in Montreal community youth workshops she leads. In continuation of themes from her thesis, she is currently working on a graphic memoir / handbook on navigating life as a young Black girl in Montreal, due to publish in Fall 2019. Bi-weekly she can be found hosting the When Matriarchs Gather podcast, which she created as a platform for matriarchs (women, mothers and elders) to gather, share practice, and shape community together. As part of her community engagement she also offers her services as a workshop facilitator, speaker, and project consultant.
