Following the latest guidance from the Welsh Government announcing the closure of all museums and galleries in Wales, Ffotogallery will open from 11am - 5pm on Friday 4th December, but close thereafter. Subject to further guidance we expect to reopen in early January 2021.

This is disappointing news for us, but we are delighted to have installed the exhibition and made the gallery COVID-ready to receive visitors as soon as we are permitted to do so.

In the meantime, we will be producing accompanying online resources to enable you to enjoy the exhibition from home, so keep an eye on our website and don’t forget to subscribe to our mailing list to get updates straight to your inbox.

We recommend that you prebook your visit to Many Voices, One Nation 2 at Ffotogallery using this link. If you haven’t booked your visit in advance, you may be asked to wait outside if we are at maximum capacity.

As Wales emerges from a challenging first eight months of the pandemic, Ffotogallery re-opens its doors on 4 December with an exhibition that presents a more optimistic view of our nation’s future. Many Voices, One Nation 2 features the work of twelve talented photographers working in Wales today. The exhibition captures the richness and diversity of the nation’s geography, culture and society, at a time of great uncertainty and upheaval.

During Lockdown, Ffotogallery invited photography professionals from around Wales to nominate photographers, students and artists whose work offers insights into contemporary life and represents the breadth of Welsh talent that deserves wider exposure. Twelve artists were selected from across Wales, reflecting a wide range of subjects and different approaches to photography. David Drake, Ffotogallery’s Director explains:

“Through the exhibition and in Ffotogallery’s future work, we want to make sure that we value the role people from all parts of our society play in creating a vibrant Wales. We know that the arts in Wales will be stronger, more exciting and relevant to more people if we embrace diversity. We actively encourage public participation and audience engagement with the issues arising from the exhibition”.

The exhibition has been made possible through the support from the Arts Council of Wales’ Cultural Recovery Fund, which has also enabled Ffotogallery to make its gallery Covid-safe and welcoming for visitors.

The Many Voices, One Nation programme began life as a touring exhibition developed as a collaboration between Ffotogallery and the Senedd/Welsh Parliament, which marked 20 years of devolution in Wales.

The gallery is fully COVID compliant. Face masks should be worn at all times within the building unless the wearer is exempt, and hand sanitiser is available throughout. We encourage visitors to download the NHS COVID-19 App and scan the QR code as you enter the gallery.
