The team at the Click! Festival has been working to reimagine what our festival might look like in the midst of this pandemic. We are collectively crossing our fingers that by October the world may have returned to some sense of normalcy, but we don’t think we can assume that.
Therefore we are making some adjustments. We have already committed to hosting our portfolio reviews in a virtual format (October 14-17). We are striving to make it more affordable for artists who are struggling in this time, while at the same time trying to recreate the communal experience that is so vital to our community. More details about our plans will be explained on our website as they become formalized.
Regarding other aspects of our programming, we are making dual plans. Click! Continues to be a month-long festival in October with our Click! 120 programming from October 14-18. Click! is continuing to plan to present most of that programming in a live, in-person environment, with back up plans to convert as many as possible into a virtual realm if the universe dictates it.
So please stay tuned, subscribe to our newsletter, and as things crystallize, we will be sure to share that with you. We look forward to celebrating photography with you again this October.
The month-long festival in October brings together exhibitions and programming while fostering dialogue between photographers and community members, all in hopes of inspiring artistic excellence, supporting professional development and promoting community engagement.
