The charity aims to facilitate the work of contemporary artists, fund research and scholarship, and address issues of legacy and the preservation of archives.
To serve these objectives, we plan to do the following:
Create a series of funded grants and projects.
- grants with a focus on young artists and women working in photography
- research grants for art historical scholarship
- projects working with older artists to help preserve, archive and digitize photographic work for future heritage.
Provide mentoring for younger and mid-career artists to advise on their careers, consider legacy issues, and encourage best practice for archiving their work.
Establish and maintain an archive, collection and library of historical and contemporary photographs.
Form partnerships with other arts organizations, including Universities, to provide a hub for British photography past, present and future.
