The Walkers Photographer-in-Residence Programme
The Walkers Photographer-in-Residence programme, co-ordinated in conjunction with Walkers, CBS Westland Row, and Business to Arts and photographer Kate Nolan has been a central part of our TY programme for the past three years. This has been a tremendously successful programme for a number of reasons. Students work as part of a team, meet people from a variety of backgrounds in and out of their work environment, develop new technical skills and then observe how this activity relates to the world of work and beyond. Student feedback is very positive about the programme with some identifying it as one of the most memorable experiences of Transition Year. Indeed, in some cases students have developed their career interests towards a media/art direction as a result of the programme. Mr Davis has been closely involved in the programme for the three years and he believes the reason the programme is successful is due to the commitment of Walkers staff and Kate Nolan to the programme and the students of CBS Westland Row.
