The Weekly Hunt is a community driven art project that teaches mindfulness practices through photography and social media. The goals of The Weekly Hunt are to use cell phone photography to practice moving slower through our days, to observe the world around us more closely, and to experience empathy when discovering experiences that are new and different than our own. Visit @TheWeeklyHunt on Instagram or The Weekly Hunt website for more details.

The work displayed in the Anchorlight Wilmington gallery represents images taken during the first four weeks of The Weekly Hunt printed on silk. Each visitor to the gallery is asked to contribute their own images to the project through social media and explore what mindfulness can add to their day to day experiences. For the run of this exhibition a Weekly Hunt specific to Wilmington has been created. Images submitted to The Wilmington Hunt will be displayed digitally at the closing reception.
