Each April, photography and lens-based art is exhibited at dozens of galleries and other venues throughout Metro Vancouver as part of the Exhibition Program, alongside an extensive Public Art Program, a youth-oriented Learning Program, and an Events Program that spans tours, films, artist talks, and community events.
Launched in 2013, the annual not-for-profit Capture Photography Festival is Western Canada’s largest lens-based art festival.
On behalf of all venues and artists that participate in Capture, we acknowledge the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), Semiahmoo, Katzie, Kwikwetlem, Kwantlen, Stó:lō, and Tsawwassen First Nations on which Capture Photography Festival takes place. We are grateful for their stewardship of the land, on which the rest of us are settlers, and respect their rich cultural heritage and right to self-determination. We recognize that listening, learning, and unlearning is an ongoing process and an integral facet of the decolonial practice of reciprocity and meaningful action.
