Photographs Acquisition Group
The V&A was the first museum to collect the art of photography and is world-renowned for its expertise in this field. The V&A Photographs Acquisition Group was founded to support the V&A’s photographic collections.
FuturePlan is an ambitious programme of development that is transforming the V&A. The best contemporary designers are creating exciting new galleries and visitor facilities, while revealing and restoring the beauty of the original building. FuturePlan is almost entirely funded by private donations and is succeeding thanks to the extraordinary commitment of our supporters.
American Friends and international supporters
The V&A has a busy international programme with exhibitions and loans, cultural partnerships, academic exchanges, skills sharing and trading in many countries around the world. This work is underpinned by a network of international supporters and advocates, providing much needed funding and advice.
