We share photography for everyone, with everyone, every day.

We’re more than a gallery

We’re actively rethinking what a gallery can be. We produce exhibitions, long-term collaborative projects, publications, festivals, and university courses — locally and worldwide. We welcome over 85,000 visitors to our gallery every year, over 200,000 to projects in other venues, and many more to our online spaces. We proactively take risks to spark crucial conversations and enable creative expression.

We work with people to push for social change

We’re taking a lead on socially engaged photography nationally. Bringing different voices, photographers and communities together, we establish projects where the collaborative process is just as important as the final product.

All welcome, always!

We act and communicate in a way that is generous, nurturing and friendly. We want everyone to make themselves at home in our spaces and feel comfortable using them. We seek to include, always.

We’re open source and free to use

As much as possible, our staff, space, online channels and networks are open and free for people to use. Our open processes and platforms make it easy to contribute to and co-author our programme. 

Our work goes from grassroots to global

Photography is a tremendously powerful way of bringing different cultures into conversation together. We work with local residents and international partners to support representation, empathy and inclusivity.
