Canadian Caribbean Photographic Arts Collective's first group showing


The Canadian Caribbean Photographic Arts Collective (CCPAC) presents its first major exhibit, Beyond The Carnival, to be held in the rotunda at the Scarborough Civic Centre, 150 Borough Drive, Scarborough. The exhibit featuring the works of 9 photographers will run from July 24th to August 7th, 2018 and can be viewed between 9 am and 9 pm daily.
The presentation is described as “an artistic expression of Caribbean experience through our lenses.” As photographers and historians, the CCPAC intention is to archive the history of the Canadian Caribbean experience.
“This exhibition is all about archiving the history of the Canadian Caribbean experience,” explains Anthony Berot, the founder of the Canadian Caribbean Photographic Art Collective.  “We have an amazing story that is unique to people of the Caribbean who now call Canada home.  As photographers and historians it is an experience we want to share! We have named the exhibit Beyond the Carnival, because, while most of us take pictures of spectacular Carnival events, some of us also capture photos in places and have experiences many people have not.  It is this presentation which is unique to CCPAC. ”
The Canadian Caribbean Photographic Arts Collective invites you to the opening reception on July 24th at 7.00 pm. in the rotunda at the Scarborough Civic Centre.  This reception is sponsored by Festival Management Committee FMC.
The photographers whose works are featured are Benjamin Alunyo, David Lewis, Gilbert Medina, Horace Thorne, Ian Grant , Jenny Baboolal, Peter Faure, Maq Seally and Anthony Berot.
Kindly RSVP Anthony Berot,
