Celebrate 20 years of Flickr at Photoville Festival

Photoville Festival

This year, Flickr marks a significant milestone – 20 years of providing photographers around the world a place to share, inspire, and connect with one another.

As we celebrate two decades of connecting people across the globe through the power of photography, we invite you to pick up your camera and join us at Photoville, New York City’s premier photo festival! Get ready for a series of exciting events and free public programming, including creative and professional development workshops, family-friendly activities, a series of photowalks, and a happy hour event hosted by yours truly. Read on for the full schedule of events!

Flickr happy hour

We’ll be kicking off the Opening Weekend Community Celebration with a happy hour at Brooklyn Bridge Park, hosted by our very own Frederick Van Johnson from This Week In Photo (TWiP) on June 2nd at 5:30- 6:30 PM ET. Raise a glass with fellow photographers and enjoy an inspirational evening filled with engaging conversations, networking opportunities, and the chance to learn from one another.
