Ffotogallery celebrated the opening of their new home on Fanny Street in the Cathays area of Cardiff on the evening of Wednesday 11 September 2019.

If you didn’t have an invite, you’ll have missed the opening speeches by new Chair of their Board of Trustees Mathew Talfan and current Director David Drake. So we recorded it for posterity.

Congratulations to the Ffotogallery team on securing a home and new gallery space - and for the initial refurbishment efforts to create an immediately useable gallery and library space.

“The beginning of a new chapter…”

Ffoton believes it important that all photographers in Wales have a listen and keep track of actual delivery on the many aspirational goals mentioned in the recording since, in their own words…
“Ffotogallery is the national development agency for photography and lens-based media in Wales”.
This self-ascribed title attracts £199,472.00 of Welsh Government public funding via Arts Council Wales* - so it’s important that photographers across Wales share in the benefits of this funding annually.

Pay attention folks.
