Description

Belfast Exposed’s vision is to enrich people’s lives through the power of photography.

About Belfast Exposed: 

Belfast Exposed is an independent, non-profit organisation and registered charity situated in the Cathedral Quarter, Belfast. Founded in 1983 by a group of local photographers as a challenge to media representation of Belfast’s experience of conflict, their work continues to reflect a socially engaged ethos, while responding to contemporary currents in photography and politics further afield.

Belfast Exposed believes photography is for everyone, it is accessible, meaningful and has the ability to tell stories, allowing us to create dialogue and reflect upon our history, inform our present and inspire a positive future. Celebrating photography’s diversity and creativity, Belfast Exposed works with photographers, artists, academics, communities and business partners to explore photography’s powerful ability to make a meaningful contribution to the world.

Belfast Exposed provides a range of services including four public galleries exhibition work by both internationally renowned and local photographers, images from the Archive, and their ‘Futures’ project – a special programme for emerging artists. They maintain an archive recording the political, cultural and social change in Northern Ireland; deliver an extensive educational and socially engaged outreach programme; provide specialised and bespoke training courses to the public; offer accredited educational programmes for schools and community groups, as well as a range of corporate packages for businesses; and provide venue hire suitable for meetings, presentations, product launches, networking events and bespoke corporate hospitality.
