CONTACT Photography Festival

I’m really excited about this! The Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival is the entire month of May and includes 32 exhibitions on the theme of Pervasive Influence. This is of particular interest to me because as a student in Criminology I studied the use of discourse in crime, comparing justifications of The War on Terror and The Dirty War. In Political Science I loved my class on Organizing Dissent, where I had the opportunity to study ACTUP NY and see how they used graphic art to influence public opinion. Lastly, in communications I studied persuasion techniques and theories and my favourite was inoculation used in psychological warfare. I’m really, very excited how these artists will show pervasive influence in there work!!!
