NEWCASTLE PHOTOGRAPHY FESTIVAL 2016
The inaugural Newcastle Photography Festival in October 2014 was a celebration of photography inspired by Joseph Swan and his adventures with carbon, collodion and light.
Swan and other early photographic pioneers continue to inspire us and inevitably we find ourselves planning our second Newcastle Photography Festival which will run for a week from Monday 17th October through to Sunday 23rd October 2016 here in Newcastle upon Tyne.
We are busy putting together a programme of events and are looking for people and businesses to collaborate with. Are you a business looking to sponsor an event? Are you a photographic enthusiast willing to join our merry band of volunteers? Please get in touch.
UPDATE FOR APRIL
Fundraiser at Tyneside Irish Centre Tuesday 19th April. 7pm. Although a disappointing turnout, possibly due to Newcastle playing Manchester City 50 yards away, we managed to raise over £90.We had a late flurry of happy fans after the Toons tremendous 1-1 draw with City. Many thanks to Tony and Bill at the Tyneside Irish Centre who have kindly offered us the room for our next fundraiser. --
We have hired a gallery for the Festival week at The New Bridge Project based at Norham House 12, New Bridge Street West Newcastle NE1 8AW
