The Harrogate Convention Centre is the base for the second Photo North Festival, which takes place from30 November to 2 December. This lively festival is run by a small teamof photography and curatorial professionals and is targeted towards professional photographers, the art enthusiast and the keen amateur, as well as students. Events include exhibitions, talks, workshops and portfolio reviews. Photographer Peter Dench, the co-founder and curator of Photo North, said: “The driving force behind Photo North was our desire to keep exhibitions on the road, outside of the south and get world-class work out to a northern audience. We also want to showcase the work of up-and-coming photographers to give them a leg up. We don’t want the festival to be sniffy or static, we want it to be inclusive. We want people to walk through the door and feel welcome.” It’s happening up north
