Images change our perspectives and inspire us to action. Your support of the New Orleans Photo Alliance will directly impact our ability to continue to create the connections, programs, and experiences that are essential to expanding our community of image makers and image lovers. We need your help to share the photographs that change the way people see and feel the world around them. NOPA programs include: exhibitions in our Lower Garden District gallery and in locations across the New Orleans Area, grant awards providing more than $10,000 to individual photographers, education programs, and nationally-recognized events and festivals including PhotoNOLA, the annual festival of photography in New Orleans each December.
"I've always seen PhotoNOLA as a source to fill my creative well in preparation of diving back into my work in the new year. I really admire the camaraderie the Photo Alliance provides its members. Its grassroots photographer-led programming provides a valuable resource to our community and everyone looking to be immersed in an enriching creative dialogue."
