Head On is back for 2021, and we can’t wait to share our plans for this year with you!
In 2021, we will host a fantastic year-round program of photography events, both on and off-line, including artist talks, workshops, exhibitions and much more.
A big thank you to our generous sponsors, including Create NSW and Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand (RISE) Fund – an Australian Government initiative, for helping to make these projects possible.
Our 2020 Vision project will record contemporary life in NSW throughout the challenges of 2020, and include your aspirations for the future. The exhibition will feature twenty photographers and be held in both regional NSW and Sydney, as a featured exhibition for Head On Photo Festival 2021. All NSW-based photographers and photo-artists are invited to submit work.
