#ConnectedTEN 10th Anniversary Exhibition - Special Launch Weekend 8/9 April 2017 

(10am - 5pm)


Saturday the 8th and Sunday 9th of April see the special event launch weekend for the #ConnectedTEN collaborative photography exhibition at Patchings Art Centre in Nottingham.

Being the 10th Anniversary exhibition, we decided to mark the event with a launch weekend covering two days rather than the usual single day launch and we will also be exhibiting in the Barn Gallery at Patchings as well as the usual event space in the Pavilion Gallery (all the guest speakers will be here).

To mark this special milestone exhibition we are excited to be able to announce six truly amazing guest speakers covering all genres of photography and creative exploration across the weekend, the talks and exhibition are totally FREE entry and no ticket is required although we do ask people to arrive early each day to ensure they get a seat for the interactive presentations as we know from previous years these have been hugely popular and we expect them to be even more so this year with the calibre of guest speaker who have agreed to help us celebrate the 'Big 10'.
