Our History

The Nottingham Centre for Photography and Social Engagement grew out of a series of conversations between four Nottingham based photographers who spend a lot of time engaging with artists, photographers, community activists, and people from the wide diaspora of Nottingham’s community. 

In 2017, Dan Wheeler, who runs Make it Easy Lab (formerly known as The Photo Parloud and the only darkroom/print facility in Nottingham), and Jagdish Patel, (a local photographer with a long history of human rights activist/casework), and Jake Howe, (based out of The Photo Parlour, with years of industry experience in both photography and graphic design) started talking about how to bring Nottingham’s photography community together. The team were quickly joined by Leah Wareham, a recent photography graduate (from Nottingham Trent University) and founder of The Sisterhood Creative.
