FotoFocus Partnerships

FotoFocus provides additional funding and support to partners presenting lens-based projects and educational programs that are accessible and engaging to the public. These collaborations are a vital part of what makes FotoFocus such an impactful contributor to the community.

2020 FotoFocus Supported Programming

In lieu of presenting the fifth FotoFocus Biennial, FotoFocus pledged its 2020 Biennial budget to financially support the region’s art community during the coronavirus pandemic. Over 100 Participating Venues and Partners received support from FotoFocus. Despite the global crisis, many of the venues were able to present their original exhibitions, support other projects, or develop new and responsive programming made possible by the FotoFocus Emergency Art Grant.
