The 27th October 2018 saw the launch of Nottingham’s independent photography festival, Off-centre. Taking place at New Art Exchange, we welcomed over 150 visitors throughout the afternoon. The launch event featured brilliant talks from festival organisers and funders, delicious lunch from The Speciality Coffee Shop and the first public showing of the central gallery exhibition at New Art Exchange.
The festival will take place across 16 days and 11 venues, and will showcase the work of 115 local photographers, providing an opportunity for new, emerging and established photographers to showcase their work to peers and specialists in the creative and digital industries. As part of the festival, there's also a varied programme of free workshops running exploring different aspects of photography – from practical techniques, to shooting and developing, sessions focused on how you can build connections and a sustainable business, to copyright and protecting your intellectual property.
