The FLASH Photographic Festival began in October 2014 with thirty three venues throughout Winnipeg featuring over forty photographers. Each October the festival will expose the public to a variety of photographic work and showcase the diverse range of artists working within photography in Winnipeg. Based on the need to focus on Winnipeg photographers FLASH brings photography from a diverse range of Winnipeg artists to a variety of venues — cafés, shops, public spaces and galleries. With Winnipeg’s long and established reputation as a leader in visual arts within Western Canada, the city is poised to become a leader in photography with the help of the Flash Festival.
This year, I’ll have 14 images on display in the lobby of the West End Cultural Centre. I regularly volunteer at the WECC and these photos show some of the performers that have spent time on the WECC stage over the past year.
