Throughout August we are excited to be hosting a programme of events and exhibitions that will echo with literal and abstract interpretations of this year’s theme. Looking back, looking forward and looking all around us for inspiration.

Our Mission:
The Stirling Photography Festival is an inclusive celebration of community. Our mission is to develop skills, create opportunities, and build relationships through a series of events, workshops, and exhibitions. Partnering with some of photography’s newest and finest talent from across the World, our aim is to connect our community through photography. Since we were established in 2018, we are delighted to have had the support of local businesses and Stirling’s leading heritage, creative and cultural organisations including, Go Forth Business Improvement District, Codebase, Creative Stirling, the Engine Shed, Historic Environment Scotland, Stirling City Heritage Trust, the Macrobert Arts Centre, the Smith Art Gallery and Museum, the University of Stirling’s Art Collection, The Barracks Conference Centre, Stirling Council and the team at the Tolbooth Theatre. We are grateful also for support and funding from Scene Stirling place partnership . Partnerships with Scotland's leading centres for photography including Street Level Photoworks and Stills strengthen our professional network and allow us to bring leading artists to Stirling.

Our Vision:
Our vision is to establish the Stirling Photography Festival as an annual event in Scotland’s events calendar. Our strengths are in the fact that we are truly a community festival, led by a diverse team of enthusiastic volunteers drawn from school, university, community and business backgrounds. We aim to provide grass roots support for artists, whilst continuing to offer accessible and inclusive programme of the highest standard and opportunities for involvement, whoever you are.
