Leading international photography festival, FORMAT, is back in Derby in 2015 celebrating its 10th anniversary, bringing together the best of contemporary photography under the curatorial theme of EVIDENCE.
FORMAT has established a reputation for championing international photography and introducing new talents to the UK, attracting visitors from all over the globe.

This project is totally non profit. It is open to everyone worldwide! Papergirl is a street art project originating in Berlin in 2006, which is now produced in cities worldwide.

The Light & Shade exhibition explores the juxtaposition and contrast of colour. We have many striking pieces of art that make a statement and not to be forgotten our 3D covers a range of ceramics, textiles, wood, glass, jewellery and photography. We have invited several guest artists with new pieces not regularly in the gallery.
