There are plenty of ways to get involved with ACP. Volunteering is a great way to experience the festival and volunteers are one of the central support during the festival. If you are a photography student, photography professional or lover of photography we would love to have your help.
As a volunteer you can sign up for Gallery Hosting during the weekdays and weekends, Greeting attendees during our Lecture and Film Series, Festival Guide distribution to Metro Atlanta galleries, museums, universities, coffee shops etc., Checking in photographers at our Portfolio Review & Greeting attendees at the Portfolio Walk , Art Handler at our Auction & Gala event and much more.
Also if you have special skills such as event management & coordination, exhibition installation, event photography, A/v Technical Support, Matting & Framing etc. Please let us know.
It is not necessary to have a photography background to volunteer. By volunteering you will have the opportunity to learn about photography, and meet others with similar interests and make connections in the photography community.
The best way to get in touch about these opportunities is to sign-up for our Volunteer email list, below. We'll be in touch, around August, with a way to sign-up for activities and events that pique your interest.
Hear and meet leading photographers, educators, and curators during the ACP Lecture Series. Past speakers include Gregory Crewdson, Zoe Strauss, Vincent Laforet, Tierney Gearon, Alec Soth, Larry Sultan, Bruce Davidson, Lorna Simpson, Lauren Greenfield, Deborah Willis, Dan Winters, and more.
The ACP Portfolio Review and Walk offers artists the opportunity to meet with highly respected curators, dealers, editors, and agency representatives from across the US and beyond. The Portfolio Walk gives participating photographers the opportunity to present their work to the general public at an evening reception, open to all.
