Fraud Blocker

2024 looks extremely challenging as inadequate public funding, decreased commercial sponsorship and increased costs all contribute to significant uncertainty about the viability of Head On Photo Festival 2024.

*”The event has been extremely successful, according to artistic director Moshe Rosenzveig, but on Friday he learned its application for $100,000 in federal government funding had been knocked back.

“I can be stoic and say ‘well, that’s life’, but the reality is it’s very difficult and getting more difficult,” – Festival Director, Moshe Rosenzveig OAM told AAP.”

“It all leaves Head On with more financial support from foreign countries than it receives from the Australian government.”

However, within our capacity, we aim to create an annual program and cultural hubs, including place-making activations across highly-visited public spaces that raise awareness of photography and Head On artists.

Head On has always and will endeavor to continue to support artists at all stages of their careers to provide experience, exposure and invaluable opportunities through commissioned projects, online presence and our year-round program, focusing on regional and international touring programs to provide more opportunities for more artists.

The Head On Photo Festival team looks forward to developing all partnerships, collaborations, and synergistic relationships in 2024 so that we can continue to grow, innovate and deliver for the arts community and general public.
