The Institute for Photography aims to be a place of resources, dissemination, exchange and experimentation to develop photographic culture among the general public and to support research and creation.

Its scientific and cultural program is based on the complementarity and interactivity of five main axes: dissemination, conservation, research, transmission and publishing.

During this year the Institute has defined the orientations of its prefiguration.
The conference last October brought together regional, national and international photography experts on common issues for conservation, mediation and research.

The first edition of the Creative Support Program, which awards four scholarships each year, was also launched.
Beginning next year, the Institute will start its Artistic and Cultural Transmission program and will program a first season of photographic events on its future location.
