Attention fellow U of T students/photography lovers!

I am looking for volunteers to assist in the creation and execution of a photography exhibit in downtown Toronto, which will take place at Hart House on June 1st. This will be a community engaged initiative in partnership with Dowling Community Service Residence. The Dowling Residence is a transitional home for men who have experienced mental illness and extreme poverty.

·       Helping to print black & white photographs in the darkroom at Hart House and prepare matting for the frames (approx. 3 hours x 2 days)

This will be a fun and interesting project; one that can be included on a CV and will be counted as part of your co-curricular record.
