He has curated two photography festivals, Arles in 2004 and Brighton Biennial in 2010.

More recently Parr curated the Barbican exhibition, Strange and Familiar. He has been a member of the Magnum agency since 1994 and was President from 2013-2017. In 2013 Parr was appointed the visiting professor of photography at the University of Ulster.
