Presented in partnership with Magenta Foundation, Toronto
Capture is pleased to partner with Magenta Foundation, Canada’s pioneering charitable arts-publishing house based in Toronto and the founder of the Flash Forward Incubator, to present the first edition of the Incubator in British Columbia.
Presenting a new model for arts education and support in Canada, the Flash Forward Incubator Program both proposes a new exciting model for arts education and prepares emerging artists for their transition out of high school and into the next phases of their artistic careers.
This year’s program is open to a wide range of photography-based projects that explore the theme of cut and paste: the impact of cut and paste in our world today, the role that it has played in the history of art, and the social and psychological impact that a cut-and-paste world proposes.
Offered outside of the regular school curriculum, Incubator gives students opportunity to engage with critical and contemporary art ideas and methodologies they may not be working with in their art classes. Developed in collaboration with industry professionals and educators, the program integrates independent and interactive instructional methods, both online and in-person, and offers diverse opportunities to give and receive feedback from other students, teachers, and Magenta and Capture’s education team.
In addition to an education experience, the Incubator offers students a signature piece for their portfolios; a publication, produced by Magenta; and an exhibition/silent auction, held during Capture.

Many of the students will be in attendance, and it’s a chance for the community to congratulate them on their completion of the Incubator as well as to scope out the next generation of photographic talent out of British Columbia. Each of the professionally printed and framed works will be available for purchase at the Silent Auction on Apr 29. All money raised goes back into the schools’ art programs.
