BECAUSE WE CAN: The Exhibition

The Shutter Hub exhibition Because We Can opened on 8th July at Festival Pil’ours, Saint Gilles Croix de Vie, France. We are sharing the whole exhibition with you here, because we know not everyone can make it to France, but everyone deserves to see it. 

The exhibition has been really well received, so much so that we are planning to work with Festival Pil’Ours again in 2019. You can find out more about the story behind the exhibition, and see more photos and feedback from the exhibition launch, here.
