Photival is the not-for-profit, Wellington documentary photography festival focusing on social, economic and environmental issues. Our aim is to show people thought provoking and inspiring photographic work and then give them the tools they need to engage with positive change. We’re excited to bring you a diverse programme of events and free exhibitions this year with many collaborations across the city, please have a look below for an overview of what we’re offering this year, many of our events will be confirmed by the beginning of April.
2019 theme - influence
In the age of the humanist self, what are we, our communities and the earth influenced by? People, organisations or events with influence can have positive or negative effects on our inner and outer worlds, so we’re aiming to shine a light on some of these stories. With a focus on local photographers we'll share some of the best documentary photography in New Zealand. We’ve collaborated with some great galleries, museums, universities and other institutions from across the city and we’ll have 4 weeks of inspiring events to accompany the varied exhibition programme.
Please check the galleries websites for their individual opening times
