This year we have 28 amazing exhibitions, many sharing powerful and moving stories of humanity and advocacy including two international photographers with incredible stories of life and the world we are part of.
A Pop up gallery at 211 Heretaunga Street Hastings, works hosts The Hawke's Bay Photography show, contemporary work from New Zealand photographers with many for sale.
This space will  also host several community exhibitions and a number of workshops and talks - find out more here.
Entry is free , come along and be inspired by the creativity and passion of our presenters, from those who use their skill to create memories for others  to those who use it to change the world.

While you're there, take in a portrait shoot like the old days with Tintype, or  take a walk around the taking in the exhibition's around the city.
