40 Years of Forward Thinking

Celebrate the Calgary Folk Music Festival’s storied history and 40th anniversary through a photographer's eyes with a new special exhibition in partnership with the National Music Centre (NMC).

This lovingly curated exhibition celebrates 40 years and relives beautiful memories through 40 photographs taken by professional Festival volunteers. From the personal and poetic to the magic of performance, they capture the people and moments that make the Calgary Folk Music Festival something truly special. The exhibition, 40 Years of Forward Thinking, is accessible with paid admission to Studio Bell and will run from February 1 to March 4, 2019, alongside Exposure, Alberta’s Photography Festival, in venues across the province.
