All seasoned in the area of copyright law it will be an evening of lively conversation and insights with time dedicated to questions and answers for those attending.

The Theatre Centre promotes artistic innovation by encouraging artists to collaborate across genres, including theatre, music, dance, visual art and new media, investing in ideas, and challenging artists to develop new ways of working. Since its formation in 1979 when a group of like-minded artistic collectives came together to create a shared space where proactive ideas could be seen and heard, The Theatre Centre has incubated, commissioned, produced and hosted hundreds of artists from Toronto, across the country and around the world.

We invite you to join us at the Theatre Centre on 1115 Queen Street West on Tuesday, June 9th in an engaging evening concerning your rights around your work. All are welcome. At time of registration participants will be asked to submit a legal question pertaining to the industry.

CAPIC’s Double Vision 2014


A unique contest, the brain child of Michael Mahovlich past president of CAPIC Toronto, where an illustrator and a photographer are randomly paired together to create portraits of each other. Double Vision.

This one-of-a-kind event, the seventh show to date, pairs together photographers with illustrators to create a unique and creative portrait of each other, displayed “face to face” in the gallery space.

All guests are invited to vote on their favourite pair through the strategic placement of beans inside empty containers placed in front of each pairing, which only adds to the lively flair and energy of the evening.

The contest is open to all professional image creators in Canada
