Flash Photographic Festival 2017
October 1 - October 31
Winnipeg’s own Photographic Festival is back in action for the FOURTH year.
October is Photo Month and it will feature many venues and events.
WHAT is Flash? 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!
WHO is Flash? ALL are welcome. 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.
WHERE is Flash? In your local coffee shop, at the restaurant down the road, in art galleries, on recycle bins, Flash is EVERYWHERE! Even out in Elm Creek, Selkirk and Gimli! See the MAP for all locations.
WHEN is Flash? All of October, 1st to 31st, every year since 2014.
WHY is Flash? 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.
Because working together, and creating community with local business helps all of us!
