Under the umbrella of the Griffin Museum of Photography’s 25 year reputation for stellar photographic exhibitions and educational programming, the Flashpoint Festival intends to bring more institutions together around the ideas of community, art and photography.  

Thus far, Flashpoint via the Griffin has partnered with Boston University, SoWa Boston, Lesley University College of Art and Design, Gallery Kayafas, Art New England and the Photoville Fence to host events, exhibitions and programming during the festival’s launch in the fall of 2017. With your help, we hope to elevate our artists and community to become a truly premier annual arts event in Boston.
