The Light Factory

Where artists, photographers, filmmakers and enthusiasts gather to share their impressions, techniques and passion…

Where the most recognized, most acclaimed and occasionally notorious images hang on the wall to educate and inspire...

Want to support outstanding photographers and filmmakers? Here is your opportunity.


About the Project

The Light Factory is raising funds to build two new galleries, a darkroom and a digital classroom in its new location in the vibrant Plaza Midwood neighborhood of Charlotte, North Carolina.


UPDATE: Thank you, thank you, thank you!

We did it! We reached our funding goal! We can hardly believe it, but we surpassed our initial goal last Friday afternoon (5/16) ... with still a full 12 days left in the campaign. Words cannot express the gratitude we feel towards all of those who have supported us to this point. Thank you very, very much for your belief in what we're doing at the Light Factory. But we're not done yet. The response to, and support of, this campaign has been so strong, that you've emboldened us to reach beyond our initial funding goal. Find out what we're up to here ».


The Rewards

As rewards for your generous support, some incredible photographers - members of the organization, and an extension of who we are - have offered amazing prints. From Jerry Uelsmann, to Maggie Taylor ... from Pinky Bass to Tom Chambers. Scroll down the page now and take a look at the wide range of rewards we're offering. You won't be disappointed!

Who We Are

The Light Factory Contemporary Museum of Photography and Film is a not-for-profit lens-media-based arts and education center dedicated to the power of image. Through exhibitions, film screenings, lectures, classes and workshops, we bring important contemporary issues to the region and beyond.

In its 42 years The Light Factory has developed a national reputation for engaging and challenging exhibitions, including artists such as those who are supporting us through their generous donations of the prints being offered here.

Believing that art can change lives, The Light Factory offers an extensive community outreach program. Participants, having been successful in our programs by accomplishing goals for their artistic vision, develop and enhance their creative thought process, and find renewed interest in other areas of their lives. Our outreach students are learning to see the beauty of their world and becoming more confident in trusting their imaginations.


Why are we doing this?

In October of last year, The Light Factory made the difficult decision to temporarily suspended operations. As the broader non-profit community struggled to maintain funding support, The Light Factory also experienced a decline in funding - including both contributed and earned revenue - of almost 30 percent over the past three years.

In the subsequent few weeks and months, a group of devoted volunteers - some of whom had helped found the Light Factory decades ago - stepped up to save it. After careful consideration, the organization decided to return (and stay to true) to its roots as a volunteer-based entity, and set itself on a path to remain self-sustaining, rather than merge with another organization.

The 19 members of the new, all-volunteer board are in the process of "re-lighting" the Light Factory. While the initial focus was to get the organization as a whole back on its feet, the broader focus of the board is to establish a sustainable model that will endure well into the future.

Since those difficult days in October, this is a short list of what the revitalized organization has been able to accomplish:

  • Voted in a new Board of Directors
  • Moved from the previous Spirit Square location to the new location in Plaza Midwood, thanks to help from members and volunteers over the course of several weekends
  • Thanks to board pledges, rent at the new location has been paid for a full year
  • Built-out a new classroom at the new location thanks to membership fees & donations
  • Re-launched The Light Factory's education adult program with several classes in the first few months of the new year.
  • Collaborated with The Charlotte Symphony, holding a small photo exhibition of members' (Sam Wang, Ahmer Inam, Gary Miller, Charles Johnson) landscape work, at a recent performance.
  • Re-launched the official website of The Light Factory (http://www.lightfactory.org/)
  • Currently holding an exhibition of photographs at Babson Capital in Charlotte, with work by 4 Light Factory members (Byron Baldwin, Carolyn DeMeritt, Linda Foard Roberts, Phil Moody). 
  • Received administration funding support from the Arts and Science Council.

With our feet now firmly under us, we launched this campaign to take the organization's revitalization efforts to the next level. Our goal is to raise funds that will help us in the construction of new spaces at our new Plaza Midwood location. In addition to finalizing the construction of the classroom, we want to upfit the new space with darkroom facilities and gallery space(s). We appreciate your interest and support in helping us RE-LIGHT The Light Factory!

Note: Please expect to receive all artwork and acknowledgements within three to four weeks from the closing date of our campaign. After much deliberation, and hand-wringing, we made the difficult decision to only ship artwork domestically. The wide variation in international shipping costs, coupled with the challenges of dealing with customs is what prompted this decision. The good news for all US-based backers is that shipping is included with your generous contribution to this project!

Risks and challenges

The Light Factory is an organization with a long and storied heritage in the Charlotte community. Founded in 1972, it has seen its share of ups and downs over the years. In fact, this isn't the first time The Light Factory has changed locations and attempted to reinvent itself.

The spirit of the organization has endured through these transitions over the years, and that spirit is alive and well today. The newly elected board pledged the funding necessary to pay the rent at the new location for a full year. This campaign is an effort to jump start the Light Factory's revitalization efforts in its new location in the heart of the Plaza Midwood neighborhood in Charlotte.

Thank you for helping us RE-LIGHT The Light Factory!
