European Photography Platform: Amplifying Artists.
futures-photography.com

/futuresphotography @futuresphotography

 

Started: 2017
What: European Photography Platform run by Vandejong and co-funded by the EU Creative Europe Programme.
When: Running continuously since 2017.
Where: Various locations around Europe.
Why: Talented emerging artists distinguish themselves by taking risks. They explore new ways of visualising ideas from fresh and diverse perspectives. However, from a commercial point of view, these works are not always easy to sell. And this is why these upcoming artists need a strong support system and access to a wider audience.

Co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union, 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.

Every year, Futures organises a series of events across Europe within each of its member countries. And every year they are all brought together at the Futures event at Unseen Amsterdam.

Futures is an initiative of the European Photography Platform. At the moment the platform has 10 founding members

Irish Talent presented in 2019: Dorje de Burgh, Megan Doherty, Aisling McCoy, Yvette Monahan, and George Voronov
