We’re thrilled to celebrating a century of our building and Alberta Culture Days over the same weekend.  Here’s the schedule:

September 26th
3:30 – 4:30pm

4:30 – late | Retrospective Vernissage of Ortona Artists in the Ortona Room
4:30 – 8pm | FAVA Cult Days – DIY Darkroom – Bring Your Own Negative

Got old family photo negatives sitting around in a box somewhere? Dig them out and come make a B + W enlargement yourself! Never done it before, no problem. Brint it in to FAVA’s darkroom between 4:30pm – 8pm on Friday, September 25th and be guided through the process. Spend 15 mintues or an hour playing with the new facilities and have fun developing photos the old school way. Any format will work – 16mm, 35mm, medium or large format, glass plates – whatever you’ve got. The older, the better! Black and white negatives work best but we’ll work with colour negatives too (the orange ones). Please note, the enlargements will all be
B + W.
