Ffotogallery has believed in the power of photography for 40 years. Our ambition for 2018 is to create a world-class centre for photography in the heart of Cardiff.

A truly 21st century centre rooted in its local context, offering creative opportunity for people from all walks of life, whilst being outwardly focused and global in its reach and impact. We are seeking a site in Cardiff to develop a new home for Ffotogallery, including a creative studio offering space and production facilities for local artists and designers.
