North East Photography Network is developing the first international celebration of photography in the North East, with events taking place over a month from 18 October – 15 November 2013. The opening weekend is scheduled for Friday 18 – Sunday 20 October.
The Social: Encountering Photography is being programmed with key partner, the Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art and will create a dynamic context for exchange of photographic practice and experimentation, embracing varied social contexts and activities. It will bring artists and artworks of national and international stature to the region, whilst creating opportunities for regionally based photographers to exhibit their work. Sunderland will be the creative hub of the event, enabling NEPN to collaborate with a range of cultural and business associates, including the new Northern Centre of Photography at the University of Sunderland, Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens, The Bridges Shopping Centre and the National Glass Centre. Partnerships with Durham Art Gallery, the Mining Institute in Newcastle and smaller organisations such as new photography space PH, amongst others, will extend the reach of the event across the region.
