#GivingTuesdayNow is a new global day of giving and unity set for May 5, 2020, as an emergency response to the unprecedented needs that COVID-19 has caused.
In celebration of this day of giving, we are reaching out for support. For more than 40 years, Light Work has been a leading artist-run organization, providing much-needed support to emerging and under-represented artists working in the field of photography and digital imaging—many of our artists have had a significant and ongoing influence on art and photography. With the safety of our staff and community as our top priority, we made the difficult but important decision to close our doors to the public on March 13. Over the last 52 days, Light Work staff and curators have worked diligently to reimagine new and creative ways to remain engaged. We are grateful for the incredible response we have received for our online programs. Yet, even with our hard-won triumphs, there is much work ahead and inevitable financial hurdles.
Please consider participating in #GivingTuesdayNow, lend your support through the purchase of an exclusive signed limited-edition print, a photobook, a subscription to our award-winning periodical Contact Sheet, or enrollment in one of our many online Lab workshops.
