African Multicultural Engagement Centre (AMCC)
The African Multicultural Community Centre (AMCC) seeks to be a beacon for Edmontonians of African descent, fostering unity, celebrating diversity, and acting as a cultural hub for all to enjoy. It represents the vibrant tapestry of cultures, histories, and aspirations of our African community.
The project will include several phases of consultation and community engagement processes.
Business Case Development
AMCC project funder
Athlone Neighbourhood Engagement
Reimagine Gathering was commissioned in August 2023 to complete an updated business case for the AMCC. The intent of the business case is to present to the Edmonton City Council an analysis of the need for the Centre and options for capital and operating models.
This project is a partnership between the Africa Centre and the City of Edmonton. A steering committee with representatives from both organizations will oversee the project.
The options presented in the business case will be informed by the findings gathered from two parallel tracks of key community engagement:
Athlone Neighbourhood Engagement will target all residents of the neighbourhood where the AMCC will be built, irrespective of their racial or ethnic background, and to be completed by the Consultant.
Engagement of diverse communities of African Descent will be completed by a CNEORM Services Ltd. procured separately by the Africa Centre
