Futures is a new photography platform that pools the resources and talent programmes of leading photography institutions across Europe in order to increase the capacity, mobility and visibility of its selected artists. By bringing together a wealth of resources and curatorial expertise, each talent selected by the Futures members gains access to an unprecedented network of professionals, markets and audiences.
Futures is an initiative of the European Photography Platform. At the moment the platform has 12 members: the British Journal of Photography (UK), CAMERA (IT), Hyères Festival (FR), FOMU (BE), Fotofestiwal Lodz (PL), PHotoESPAÑA (ES), PhotoIreland (IR), Photo Romania Festival (RO), Robert Capa Contemporary Photography Center (HU) and Triennial of Photography Hamburg (DE). The platform will recruit new members every year from countries around the world. Futures is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
Every year, Futures organizes a series of events across Europe within each of its member countries – to promote artists invited each year for collaboration. And every year they – members and invited artists – are all brought together at the Futures event at Unseen Amsterdam.
As part of Futures membership, Fotofestiwal organizes artistic residencies, curates with new programs and implements local projects as part of Fotofestiwal.
