The CPB Foundation is a non-profit charitable trust engaged in promoting photographic art, meaningful socio-cultural discussion, and educational activities. Active around the year, the Chennai Photo Biennale is its primary activity.
Our Vision: An artistic, critical and impactful exploration of our world through images
Our Mission is to inspire critical thinking and discourse around the image and its impact on our collective memories.
We are a registered non-profit trust committed to bringing together diverse communities and generations in Chennai and beyond through public art and engagement. Our curated year-round events and education programs are anchored by a large scale Biennale in unexpected and inclusive spaces. Through grassroots programs at schools, colleges, year-long activities and a large scale bi-annual city-wide event - we hope to bring together children, amateurs, skeptics and fans of photography.
