PEEPS + FRIENDS + PARTNERS
The house of .F.F.M.P. is still a baby, but like all babies, this precious little thing has been growing fast. Here are some of the peeps, friends and partners we know and love! (psssst... plus they're creating a boatload of magic):
NEW ART CITY
Our gallery partner is New Art City, an online multiplayer exhibition space for digital art and performance. Their 3D gallery toolkit allows artists and curators to build new types of exhibition spaces that can be accessed by hundreds of simultaneous visitors from all over the world with no need to register or download anything. They are an artist-run organization dedicated to supporting artists, providing virtual space for those who are denied physical space, and amplifying the work of those who face systemic injustice. You can find their work at https://newart.city

What they offer is unique and personal. Shutterhub is dedicated to creating fair access to photography, making a positive impact within the industry and opening up opportunities for everyone – be it through thier Membership Bursary Awards, Camera Amnesty Projects, or other similar initiatives.
THE ARTISTS INFORMATION COMPANY
Through advocacy and information and from the perspective of artists, a-n’s mission is to stimulate and support contemporary visual arts practice and affirm the value of artists in society.
It is telling that currently 18% of AOP Accredited Photographer members are female, compared to 75% of AOP Student members. f22 aims to lobby for change to address the current imbalance of the number of female & non-binary commercial photographers, as part of an on-going need for further gender equality across society.
Through regular meet-ups, exhibitions and workshops we provide a dedicated platform offering the best business practice support. Together f22 continues to explore ways in which to grow the visibility of women & non-binary commercial photographers at all levels.
Creative expression, education, and empowerment.
Four Corners believes in film and photography for all. As a registered charity, their work builds upon almost 50 years of radical, socially-engaged approaches to photography and film.
Access to the arts is not equal. Four Corners aims to change that. Their training projects enable underrepresented people to gain skills in creative media. 4Cs support artists’ development, work with local communities and engage broad audiences through their cultural programme.
THE LONDON CREATIVE NETWORK
London Creative Network (LCN) is a tailored professional development programme for London-based visual artists, craft makers and photographers. Delivered by SPACE, Cockpit Arts, Four Corners and Photofusion, it runs from 2014 to 2021.
The London Creative Network project is part-financed by the European Regional Development Fund Programme.
