Now in our fourth year, Carlisle Photo Festival continues to offer all photographers opportunities to exhibit in diverse venues across the city of Carlisle. We hope to challenge ideas about the way contemporary photography can interact with both its surroundings and audience. In using unusual venues we aim to attract a wider range of the viewing public and create a buzz in the community.
