Calling Photographers: Double Exposure


Double Exposure creates a platform for creating dialogue between photography and poetry. This interdisciplinary event showcases the talent of our community, and honors two popular annual events: Capture Photography Festival as well as Canada’s National Poetry Month. It not only celebrates talented community-based artists, but also generates opportunities for their connection and growth.
