Where Symbols Meet: A Celebration of West African Achievement opened in 1994

For over 26 years, there has existed a small but significant portal on the prairie into the heart of West Africa. Where Symbols Meet: A Celebration of West African Achievement offers a window to the art and stories of five major cultural groups from over a dozen West African countries. The exhibition was made possible through the contributions of several African-Canadian community consultants, including Tunde Dawodu.
