Throughout April, Creative Darlington and Lens Think will be collaborating to create an opportunity for people from all walks of life to submit and showcase their photographs of Darlington.

They are particularly interested in the ‘Unseen Beautiful’, celebrating Darlington, our beautiful surroundings and everyday things that you think showcase our town through a different perspective. Photographs will be collected through Instagram – tag your photographs with @creative_dton and the hashtag #unseenbeautifuldarlo.

The resulting photographs will be showcased in Crown Street Gallery. Audiences will have the opportunity to vote (online and in the gallery) for their favourite photograph. The winner will be announced on Wednesday 29 May and will receive a photography workshop, led by professional photographer and Lens Think founder Joanne Coates.

Date and times: Saturday 18 May (except 1.30pm-2.30pm) and Monday 20 May, usual gallery opening times
(Exhibition runs until Wednesday 29 May)
Venue: Crown Street Gallery, Darlington DL1 1ND
Cost: This is a free event. All children should be accompanied by a responsible adult
