Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival

May 1 – June 22, 2019

Lakeshore Arts has two exhibitions in this year’s Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival. The IN FOCUS exhibitions feature metaphorical self-portraits and reflective poetry by select Grade 8 participants of Lakeshore Arts’ in-school educational program, Shazaam! In Focus.

The exhibitions explore identity and the value of self-reflection through digital photography and spoken word. The opening receptions will feature student performances.
