This year I submitted a proposal for photographic installations in a competition and have secured winning spaces in The Nuit Rose festival.
Nuit Rose is a free annual festival of art and performance that takes place during Toronto Pride. It showcases provocative, cutting edge work by diverse local and international artists, and engages LGBTQ communities, art lovers, residents and visitors to Toronto in unique experiences with art across the city. Nuit Rose returns for its fifth year.
