Today, the AntiRacism Photography Fundraiser launches with more than 100 of the most prolific and exciting photographers from across the globe contributing images from their archives. The money raised will be split between three British organisations and charities supporting the Black community: The Black Curriculum, Black Minds Matter, and Exist Loudly, and will run for the next three weeks until the 24th July.

The list of artists contributing to the fund is vast and ever-expanding, featuring famed favourites including Martin Parr, Wolfgang Tillmans, Joyce NG, Corrine Day, Arielle-Bobb Willis and Kai Isaiah Jamal, to name a few. A full list of participants can be found on the fundraiser’s official website.

Racism is a deeply-rooted British issue. As the Black Lives Matter movement continues to lead the fight for equality, the decision to operate under the banner of Anti-Racism is a call for the creative world, and the world at large, to fight racism everywhere it exists while empowering the organisations and charities already doing this work. Each one of the charities chosen to receive the donations is doing vital work in harnessing the passion and momentum of this social movement to create meaningful and permanent changes to Black communities across the UK.

The Black Curriculum is a social enterprise founded in 2019 by young people to address the lack of Black British history in the UK Curriculum, delivering arts-focused Black history programmes, teacher training and campaigning through mobilising young people. Black Minds Matter connects Black individuals and families with free mental health services by professional Black therapists, specialising in Black trauma. Exist Loudly is a fund created by award-winning youth activist Tanya Compas, funding programmes for queer Black young people here in London, and support young queer Black people outside of London digitally.
