Flash Photographic Festival

October 23, 2017 to October 29, 2017. We are a photographic festival that features local Winnipeg and Manitoba photographers of all skill levels. It is a venue for all types of photography where photos are hung on walls for all 31 days of October. It is FREE to all to see!Whatever your skill level, if you can find a venue/business to partner with, Flash welcomes you to participate! We continue to grow and in 2016 we had 116 photographers displaying work in 53 venues. And the festival has gone international, welcoming Icelandic photographer Gaui H whose work is at the Gas Station Arts Centre.Our mission is promoting the art of photography by bringing together photographers and businesses in Winnipeg and around Manitoba. Getting people out and about seeing art and visiting places they have never been is good for culture and good for Winnipeg.FLASH offers a concentrated event where everyone can join in and more attention can be grabbed. Flash is happy to partner with Winnipeg Harvest this year, with proceeds from our street portraits and our Dodge + Burn series supporting this local food bank. Education is on our minds as we look to continue to grow. Flash would like to connect with educators of all levels from elementary schools to post secondary. Perhaps for 2017 we will have a whole show just of Kindergarten photographs!? We have demonstrations of Cyanotypes (blueprints) and Victorian Salt Printing. These alternative processes are part of photographic history and should be shared!. Event Details. Location: D-468 Main Street Winnipeg, Manitoba R3C 1B6, Winnipeg
