GRAIN recognises the need to invest in the infrastructure for photography in the region and to develop enablers and connectors who have impact and influence amongst the photography community. As such we have developed a Business Development Project in collaboration with consultant Lara Ratnaraja that enables focussed work with beneficiaries on their existing business competencies and their future growth and sustainability. This specialised work fulfills the objectives that GRAIN has for high quality activity, collaboration and impact.
The first three beneficiaries of this programme are Karen Newman, supporting her creation and development of BOM, Birmingham Loves Photographers, supporting their business development and fundraising and SQUARE, supporting their business development and the expansion of their exhibition programme.
