The Canadian Labour Congress is calling on photographers to help them create a unique workers’ photo exhibit to mark their 60th anniversary next year.
Along with the CLC, Canada will celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017. To celebrate and recognize achievements of the Canadian labour movement the CLC is developing a photo exhibit on workers’ rights and the struggle for social justice.
The exhibit is intended to document victories and acknowledge workers’ many ongoing struggles. The struggle for safe and healthy work is one of many issues photographers may wish to explore.
The CLC will launch the exhibit at their Constitutional Convention in May 2017 after which it will travel across Canada to labour conventions, union halls, community centres and public arts venues including the Workers Arts and Heritage Centre in Hamilton.
