Guided Walk and Workshop: October 2, 10 am – 12:30 pm
Photography exhibition and discussion: October 16, 10 am – 12 pm
Join us for an Artist Talk and Photo Walk with local photographer Kenneth Chou! Starting at the Guelph Civic Museum with a brief presentation on Guelph’s photographic history and an introduction to photography basics, the photo walk will offer a unique opportunity for participants to take part in an active photographic exhibition on display during Culture Days.
Participants will be encouraged to bring their smartphones, analog or digital cameras as we tour notable and significant landmarks in downtown Guelph. All age groups and skill levels are invited. Participants will engage in hands-on learning regarding composition, exposure and other photographic arts techniques.
The culminating work will be exhibited at the Guelph Civic Museum on October 16th for the final day of Culture Days, with a chance to share photographs created and discuss learnings with Kenneth and other participants.
Come tell your story!
