Toronto’s spring visual art feast, the CONTACT Photography Festival, returns for its 25th year both in the streets and online.

The pandemic makes the festival’s focus on the spirit-raising power of art especially timely—and therapeutic. The Festival pandemic-pivots with photos outdoors, including a vivid image stretched across Ryerson’s School of Image Arts Building at Gould and Bond, as well as throughout the west end highlighting the work of students from the Sheridan Photography graduating class.

A series of artists talks and practical photography sessions are available online.
