The Photographers' Gallery
Since joining the Federation, we have been impressed not only by their digest of and timely response to key policy issues that affect the creative industries, but by the calibre and detail of their reports and their programme of events. We have benefited enormously from the access to influencers and opinion-formers across the political and creative spectrum, as well as the opportunity to share best practice and resources with our peers. The programme of artist presentations, keynote lectures with policy-makers and other high-level events, as well as discussions with other members facing the same challenges and issues as ourselves, have been invaluable. Particularly now, an organisation that is informed by and through the sector with a real ability to influence and effect change is indispensable.
