Today we mark the 5th day of the 28 day F295 membership campaign. The success of this drive will directly influence the future of F295. Today, we stand ready to implement an ambitious schedule of events, exhibitions, residencies, and publications, but we need your help to make it all happen.
If you value an organization that looks beyond the photographic status quo to promote and advocate brilliant and compelling work in both online and gallery space exhibitions – please support F295.
If you value the idea of our proposed a research library that collects books, papers, emails, periodicals, audio and video of photographic artists talking about their work for use by artists, scholars, and others – please support F295.
If you value the idea of a uniquely organized and available print collection of work by those who have spoken and attended various F295 events for study and reflection – please support F295.
If you value exhibition, residency, and publication opportunities for your work and that you admire – please support F295.
If you value a brick and mortar facility (of which we’ve already partially moved into, but need your help continuing) that hosts meaningful events for photographers, collectors, scholars, and the general public – please support F295.
To put it in the clearest possible terms we need your direct & immediate support today.
This member drive ends in 23 days at which time we’ll count the votes and determine the future.
