Abilities Arts Festival is proud to announce its Call for Photographic Entries for the 2007 International
Juried Photographic Exhibition by artists with disabilities titled “Exposed”. This exciting exhibition will be
an integral part of Abilities Arts Festival’s week long, international multidisciplinary arts celebration that
includes the visual and performing arts, film, a children’s program and workshops and panels. It will be
held in Toronto, Canada, October 25 – November 1, 2007. Abilities Arts Festival showcases artistic
excellence and the talent, artistic vision, passion and creativity of artists with disabilities. Using the power
of art both as a unifying and as a transforming media, the Festival seeks to engage people in the arts,
while facilitating diversity, inclusiveness and participation by people with and without disabilities.
“EXPOSED” will present varying interpretations and representations of images depicted by photographic
artists with disabilities. Images of joy, sorrow, triumph, contemplation, defiance, wonder and/or other
interpretations of life’s dramas and complexities will be welcomed for consideration to this distinctive
exhibition which will run from October 25 until November 25, 2007 at the Joseph D. Carrier Gallery,
Toronto, Canada. The Joseph D. Carrier Gallery, which welcomes over 20,000 visitors annually and is the
third largest public gallery in Toronto, is a wonderful space that reflects the standard of excellence which
Abilities Arts Festival strives to maintain. “Exposed” will be juried by well-known Gallery owner, curator
and photographer Stephen Bulger, Toronto artist, arts commentator and curator Flavio Belli and
photographer, lecturer, and digital photography teacher, Syd Streicher.
We are seeking photographs that exemplify excellence, innovation and creativity.
