If you've got a passion for photography, you should be part of Cambridge Darkroom.


** Who are we? **

We're probably a lot like you... We love taking photos, we're continually stretching our creativity, we're always learning and we enjoy meeting like-minded souls.

** Why join in? **

We'd like to make Cambridge Darkroom more than just a camera club. We truly believe that when people with a common interest group together, they can achieve great things. Sure, we can always learn how to better use our cameras, but we'd also like to see what a bunch of creatives can achieve when they put their collective photographic minds together.
Like a lot of things in today's world, photography and being a photographer is in a continual state of wobbliness. We aim to ride the wobbles together, to inspire, to share, and to discuss opportunities that could only come about through meeting up.

** When do we meet? **

7:30pm
Last Thursday of every month
Fountain Inn, Regent Street, Cambridge

At 8pm we typically have a 30 minute presentation from someone who has something interesting to share, followed by a chance to discuss the topic over a drink or two. The meet-up is free, but we’ve yet to convince the Picturehouse to give us free beer.

** What else? **

We've somehow managed to convince the lovely people of Creative Front to give us some funding, which we're hoping to use to attract interesting folk to speak and do the occasional project, exhibition and stuff. All very exciting. 

** Is Cambridge Darkroom new? **

Not totally. Here's the history:

The original Cambridge Darkroom was the Eastern region's first and largest gallery devoted to photography and associated arts. Founded in 1984 by a group of local residents who had previously started the first community photographic resource in Cambridge in 1978, it offered a wide variety of shows ranging from major national touring exhibitions to locally sourced work by individual photographers. In addition, it provided film and print darkroom facilities, available for hire by members, as well as workshops and outreach activities involving local schools and community organisations. It lasted for twenty years, finally closing in 2004, a victim of funding cuts by the major arts organisations that supported it. Here's some more info: http://bit.ly/jbe0jg
