The Photo Gallery is Growing

With the spring submission deadline just around the corner, photo submissions from across the Bulkley Valley are rolling in. Check out the Gallery to see how some of your fellow community members are engaging with and answering the four community questions.

I encourage you to add your own photographic answers into the mix and help make the outcome of this project that much more inspiring. If you are having trouble navigating the community questions, please send me an email at life_exposure@bvartscouncil.com and we can chat about ways in which you might become unblocked. I bring this up because a number of people have found themselves stalled by the questions, and that is the opposite of what we want! Try to instead see them as a jumping off point... there are no wrong answers and we encourage you to challenge them. For instance: "How is my culture alive?" could pretty much result in photos of anything and everything, since we all define and identify with the word "culture" in different ways. Perhaps you define it as an ethnic tradition, or the natural landscape, or an artistic practice, or a specific community group to which you belong. Any one of these answers are perfect.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with. It may even end up in the Life Exposure exhibition at the Smithers Art Gallery this coming October!
