Space for stories, a photography platform in Amsterdam
We believe in stories. There are many urgent, interesting and compelling stories out there that deserve to be told and seen. Many of them, however, don’t reach the audience, or only a very small one. Docking Station’s mission is to bring high-quality visual stories out there so that they can make an impact. Because they provide us with new windows onto the world. They can help us understand complex issues related to migration, climate change, conflict and identity. They can create empathy and connect people.
Sometimes all these stories need is a little help to make them grow and reach a broad and diverse audience. That is why eight times a year we invite one visual storyteller (who we call a Docker) to dock at our bay and connect with our creative network.
Our network that includes: photographers, curators, gallery owners, designers, new media experts, journalists, experts related to the theme of the project and many more that help the photographers to develop their socially engaged story.
Docking Station provides a platform for the development of visual stories and is at the same time a mediator between the photographer, workspace/organisations/companies and the audience.
Get inspired, inspire others and leave fully charged.
Docking Station is financially supported by
...and all our loyal docking members!
