Business to Arts and financial services law firm, Walkers, joined Irish photographer Kate Nolan, the 2019 Walkers Photographer-in-Residence and transition year students from CBS Westland Row to celebrate the completion of the second year of the Walkers Photographer in Residence. The student’s project work was showcased at Walkers offices alongside Walkers staff photography, highlighting the development of their photographic skills together.

Walkers and Business to Arts also announced the winners of the ‘Walkers Stories from the Docklands Photography Competition’. The three competition categories focused on the themes of community, neighbourhood, work and play. Winners included:

  • Children of Walkers staff / Students 11 years and under – Julia Kolasa, Rutland NS student
  • Children of Walkers staff / Students 12 to 18 years of age – Yung Kien Chong, CBS Westland Row student
  • Walkers Staff – Niamh Pender

Walkers staff, family members, and students from local schools in the Dublin Docklands were eligible to enter. The winning photographs will be displayed in the new Walkers offices in the IFSC.

This project builds on the Walkers Photographer-in-Residence programme which is now its second year. In February 2018, Irish photographer Kate Nolan was announced as the Walkers Photographer-in-Residence. The residency includes a series of workshops, where Kate has introduced documentary photography to CBS Westland Row transition year students through ‘story walks’ of the Docklands. The residency supports Business to Arts’ wider programme of activity, which promotes the Arts collaboratively with businesses, artists, audiences and communities.

Garry Ferguson, Managing Partner, Walkers commented:

‘’The photography competition itself is just one component of the Photographer-in-Residence programme which involves our staff, the students of CBS Westland Row and Visual Artist, Kate Nolan in a manner which we believe reflects the ‘Walkers Way’ of working collaboratively in the community. Introducing art through the medium of photography into the Walkers workplace has had many benefits, including the promotion of enhanced communications between our people and those living and being educated in this community and the creation of a shared Docklands vision on the themes which have been the focus of this competition, namely community, neighbourhood, work and play”

At the announcement, Andrew Hetherington, Chief Executive, Business to Arts stated:

‘As we build on our partnership with Walkers and the Docklands Arts Fund, we are very happy to see the collaboration between Kate Nolan, the students of CBS Westland Row and Walkers staff continue to evolve. This programme has enabled participants involved to develop their photographic and creative skills while documenting life within the Docklands area. Taking the beautiful backdrop of Dublin Docklands as inspiration, we were delighted with the response to the Walkers photography competition from both staff and students in the local area ’.
