FORMAT International Photography Festival: Launch Night

Format - Brian Griffin Exhibition

The impressive launch of FORMAT last night brought huge crowds into the city centre, with many people braving the rain at Cathedral Green to watch a sensory performance by Elemental Force at The Silk Mill.

The evening marked the official launch of the exhibitions in various venues across the city including QUAD, Derby Museum and Art Gallery, Déda, St Werburgh’s Chapel, Silk Mill, Artsmith, Banks Mill, Westfield & Artcore, many of which were open for viewing until late last night.

We attended the launch of Brian Griffin’s special commission Still Waters at Derby Museum and Art Gallery. The cinematic series of portraits in the exhibition features business leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs who have influenced the shape of Derby’s cultural, economic and industrial landscape. We were really proud to feature as one of those businesses in the exhibition, amongst some other great leaders from different sectors in the city.

Our MD Dawn was VJing at the after party at the all new FORMAT venue The Chocolate Factory so the team carried on the evening there with a few having their picture taken in the poloroid photo booth.
