Photo: develops and promotes socially relevant photography projects/work and photographers. 

Through curatorial and educational projects throughout the African continent and beyond, Photo: promotes emerging and practicing photographers and photography with the aim to encourage critical and experimental approaches/responses, that challenge and stimulate how we think about photography and our world.

Further, through commissioning, producing and connecting photography projects and practioners, Photo: wants to encourage dialogue, exchange, engagement and participation.

Central to its vision, is the idea that photography can be a delicate tool for social change.
