Ever dreamed of exhibiting your photos at the MOV? Now is your chance.
The Museum of Vancouver is partnering with SPARC BC for a special exhibition of your photos on Vancouver’s “working world”. From tough trades, to tall towers, Working World: Diversity and Employment in Metro Vancouver, will showcase your unique perspective on this city’s intersection of work and diversity. The aim of the photo contest and exhibition is to cause people to reflect on what diverse workplaces and workplace diversity means to them, and what they see as key issues, strengths, new ways of thinking.

Previous exhibits in this space include “Post No Bills: Vancouver’s Punk Family Tree” a collection of posters, LPs & photos from Vancouver’s early punk rock era. The community gallery achieves high viewer traffic as it is free and open to the public.
