DONATE

DONATE photoFfotogallery is very pleased to announce that it has been selected for DONATE, the National Funding Scheme’s digital giving platform.

 

Launched in May this year, the DONATE platform enables the public to make instant contributions to the charitable organisation of their choice online or directly in the venue through their mobile phone. Ffotogallery, in accordance with its pioneering tradition, is proud to be the first Welsh arts organisation to be involved in the scheme.

 

Ffotogallery’s dynamic programme of visual arts education projects, events and activities offers people of all ages the opportunity to creatively engage in photography and lens based media. This work would not be possible without the generous support we receive each year. We need to raise around £5,000 a year to keep our equipment and facilities up to date, and even small donations help us to reach that target. One key aspect of our work is promoting digital creativity for all, and we are working towards widening access to our darkroom and digital production facilities. We have an well-frequented wet darkroom – one of the last remaining in Cardiff – but demand for a fully equipped digital darkroom is growing.  To make this happen we are seeking financial help towards essential equipment, such as a calibrator and a professional printer monitor, which together cost around £2,000.

 

We would love to be able to offer a fully-equipped resource for artists and individuals who would like to print their own work and learn new skills and techniques. All donations – big or small – make a huge difference. £10 can help us buy specialist  paper and ink while £25 pays for a session for a local artist to be trained to use the printer.

To accompany each exhibition, the gallery hosts evening and weekend discussion events, ‘in-conversations’ or ‘walk and talks’ with the exhibiting artists and guest speakers. These are free to attend and are a great way to learn more about the artworks in the gallery, how they have been made and the wider context of the work.
