ABOUT, HOURS, CONTACT & LOCATION
PLATFORM is an artist-run centre dedicated to considering the expanded role of photography in contemporary art. We are a multidisciplinary centre that supports and showcases local, national and international artists and are committed to supporting marginalized and BIPOC voices. Through exhibitions, lectures, workshops, production facilities and publications – we aim to foster and sustain a critically engaged community of artists.
PLATFORM accepts submissions for exhibitions annually from artists and curators. Please reflect upon PLATFORM’s mandate before submitting.
On the 12 June 1981, The Winnipeg Photographer’s Group / Floating Gallery is established. In April of 2003, the organization changes its name to PLATFORM centre for photographic + digital arts. In September 2004, PLATFORM relocated within the ARTSPACE building to its current main floor / street-level gallery space with full accessibility, including wheel-chair lift.
PLATFORM is a not-for-profit artist-run centre that has charitable organization status.
PLATFORM wishes to acknowledge the support of its membership, board of directors, volunteers and staff. Operating support for the centre is provided by Manitoba Arts Council and the Winnipeg Arts Council. Additional project support provided by Canada Council for the Arts and The Winnipeg Foundation.
