Connexions Calendar

Iskodaywatomi: Fire People

May 04, 2018 to May 31, 2018

The Ali Mustafa Memorial Collective is proud to present the work of Allen Agostino, as part of the 2018 Contact Photography Festival.

Allen is the 2017 winner of the Ali Mustafa Award for People's Journalism. In this exhibit, he calls attention to the dire state of fire services in First Nations.

Residents of First Nations are 10 times more likely to die in a fire-related incident than those in the rest of the country. Documentary photographer Allen Agostino’s work shines a light on what it’s like to be an Indigenous firefighter in communities where fire services are woefully underfunded.

Allen is a graduate of the International Center of Photography in New York City. His work has previously appeared on Al Jazeera America, News Day, The Toronto Star, Narratively, Newsweek, The Independent, and Inside Toronto.

Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM (Reception)
Venue: Livelihood Cafe
Location: Augusta Ave 254 Toronto, ON
