Local photogs, artists to show their wares at new festival

  • Print

Say cheese, Winnipeg.

The inaugural Flash Photography Festival, which will see local photographers and artists install displays of their work in various venues around the downtown area, is scheduled take place throughout the month of October.

"Seen in cities across Canada, photography festivals have positively impacted their city centres as participating venues often see increased food traffic and revenue," Downtown Winnipeg BIZ director Stefano Grande said in a statement.

"We’re proud to support the local arts community through this new festival partnership. Downtown Winnipeg continues to serve as the premier destination for culture, arts and entertainment in the city. We’re sure to see even more people in our downtown frequenting local businesses to check out world-class photography during this month long celebration."

The venues are to be determined, but expect locations such as city centre pubs, cafes, restaurants, vacant storefronts, and the lobby of Manitoba Hydro.

Seminars on photography and artist talks are also scheduled to take place during the festival.
