“A Day in the Life of Newcastle” is an exhibition by Newcastle (upon Tyne) City Learning photography students with additional contributions from photographers in Shinshiro, Japan and Newcastle, South Africa. The initial exhibition is at the Gosforth Civic Theatre in the north of Newcastle to be followed by the principal exhibition in the main City Library in September. We hope that this project can be replicated so that photographers from other Newcastles can participate in future editions. To view some of the photos, see https://newcastlesoftheworld.com/a-day-in-the-life-of-newcastle-photography-exhibition/
