Each year, TILT seeks to raise the bar on what it means to be a place where innovation, equity, and creativity co-exist. Your annual donation makes it possible for TILT to elevate the voices of emerging, financially insecure, and/or historically marginalized artists by providing them with the resources and support they need to advance contemporary image making – while bringing their voice and much-needed perspectives to today’s visual art landscape. 

An annual, tax-deductible contribution guarantees reliable financial stability to our organization and directly impacts TILT’s community of students, artists, innovators, and audiences. Help us secure TILT’s future so that contemporary photographers and image makers at every level as well as our audiences remain inspired and engaged with socially-conscious art and dialogue.
