Thank you for joining us for this year's Photoville Festival
We are so grateful and overwhelmed by the continued support and celebration of visual storytelling by our community. Despite this year’s uncertainties and unprecedented circumstances, our reimagined hybrid Photoville Festival welcomed more than 500,000 visitors this year to our exhibitions across NYC’s 5 Boroughs.
We want to thank our amazing programming partners, who generously brought their ideas and creativity to Photoville. Thank you to all our photographers & curators for your thought-provoking and inspiring projects; to all our panel presenters for sharing your experiences; to all our workshop instructors for teaching us new hands-on skills; and to all the schools and organizations that participated in Photoville’s Education Month.
We must also shout out our founding and marquee partners without whom, none of this would have been possible: Brooklyn Bridge Park, Two Trees Management, Leica Camera USA, Photowings, NYC Ferry, and the DUMBO BID.
If you want to see the Photoville Festival return next year, please consider donating what you can, and share this far and wide with your friends, families, and colleagues. Every contribution, no matter how large or small is much needed and appreciated, and goes towards furthering our organization’s mission of supporting visual storytelling and promoting photography in public spaces.
Next year will mark the 10-year anniversary for our organization, with dozens of exhibitions and events already in the works – and we can’t wait to share it all with you!
Warmest wishes and until then,
Laura, Sam, Dave and our small & mighty team!
