Women of Colour

For a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon, Iman Bukhari invited folks to drop by Arts Commons in Calgary.

The photographer and advocate hosted a pop-up exhibit showcasing video and pictures of local women.

"Women of Colour - A Sisterhood" portrays a multitude of people whose looks find them at a loss to be accepted but the show also hopes to be a mirror for those who view the photos.

How accepting are we of people who look different? And what does difference mean anyway? 

Russell Bowers spoke with the CEO of Canadian Cultural Mosaic Foundation to find out more about her work and photos.
