Our programmes inspire children, young people, teachers, families and communities to learn about and enjoy photography.

We connect extraordinary artists with audiences, focusing on building creative knowledge and skills, and empowering people to find and amplify their voices through creativity. All our activity is artist-led, with emphasis on diversity, inclusion, and arts for all.

Check out our ever growing collection of resources, virtual exhibition tours and practical ‘how to’ guides. If you’re interested in taking part in our programmes please get in touch.
