ANNOUNCING PHOTOVILLE 2016 TALKS, TOURS and WORKSHOPS

Photoville is coming alive with a myriad of events taking place in our photo village. From talks to drop-in activities and workshops, our programming is all about making connections and learning new skills.

Photoville 2016 will feature more than 35 programs that run the photography gamut in topic and engagement, and are free and open to the public.

For thought-provoking discussions, head to the Photoville Pavilion for a two-day lineup of talks that explore topics ranging from the making of ESPN's Body Issue to dissecting the presidential campaign through the lens of Instagram.

For a special perspective into Photoville, join us for a Walking Tour with leading photography professionals. Publisher of aCurator.com, Julie Grahame, kicks us off with a special opening day tour.

To develop new photography skills, sign up for a hands-on workshop taught by some of the industry's best image makers.

To get your hands dirty and have some fun, drop in to the Activity Tent to make your own cyanotype with The Penumbra Foundation or play photo bingo with Lomography.

For working photographers seeking practical ideas for your business, Luminance – presented in partnership with PhotoShelter – returns for a fourth year with panel discussions on how to foster business relationships, get the most out of marketing, and handle the trickiest topics in taxes and finance.

Photoville in all its fun and glory is made possible by our amazing partners and we especially want to thank Brooklyn Bridge Park, Two Trees Management, Photo District News, the Consulate General of the Netherlands, HSBC, Duggal Visual Solutions, and the DUMBO Improvement District for their generous support.

Without further ado, we are thrilled to present our 2016 Programming Lineup!
