Open Call for Photographs and Videos- Vancouver Island School of Art

We are looking for submissions for photographs or video(s) of unusual or interesting aspects of Victoria for an exhibition to take place October  24 – November 17 in the Slide Room Gallery (located in the lower level of the Vancouver Island School of Art).

Victoria: Site UnScene

Site UnScene is an exhibition that draws attention to aspects of Victoria that we don’t usually see in the tourist brochures. ‘Sites Unscene’ could encompass anything from unusual viewpoints of city streets to odd objects found in an urban environment—the main stipulation is that the location of the photograph and/or video be limited to Victoria and its environs.

MOVIE MONDAY

BC Day – For B.C.’s 150 – B.C. Boomer Special Event!, 70 min

“First we’ll visit the 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s in B.C. when cigarettes and sun tanning and aimless driving vacations were good things…. We’ll visit the Fraser Valley and Okanagan with two campy 12-15 minute, tourist-attracting, Government made docs called Evergreen Playland presented by B.C. archivist Dennis J. Duffy.

Then,  we’ll see The Trips Festival and 1967 Easter Stanley Park “Be In”. As well, psychedelic music with the likes of Gerry Garcia and Janis Joplin bringing the Devil’s music to Vancouver. And an amazing interview with Mayor Tom Campbell taking a firm stand on “those people”. Our guide, Stan Fox, who worked for CBC at the time but who seems to have “gone over to the other side”, was in Vancouver and ventured to the mecca, Haight-Ashbury, documenting the phenomena with a sympathetic camera. ”
