Community Matters documents pioneering artist-activists Carole Condé & Karl Beveridge at work—as they produce a new photograph in their studio, at an exhibition where they speak to the public, at meetings, conventions, and at Toronto’s Labour Day parade. Interviews with the artist offer insights into their working process, and the beginnings of their activist collaboration in the mid-1970s. Additional commentaries —by curator Jan Allen, UK artist Lorraine Leason, and artist/historian Clive Robertson—illuminate the significance of these two pioneering artist-activists.

Winner of the Best Visual Art Film Award from the Ontario Association of Art Galleries,
Community Matters was produced to screen with the exhibit Carole Condé and Karl Beveridge: Working Culture, at the Agnes Etherington Arts Centre, (2008).
