Education

Since the beginning of the partnership, the Gallery has collaborated with partner charities of Credit Suisse on a range of projects. These have included a series of photography workshops for young people with Centrepoint, as well as workshops with the Alzheimer’s Society, The Place2Be, The Children’s Trust, and Credit Suisse partner schools.

In 2015 the Gallery began a collaboration with City Year UK to deliver a bespoke personal and cultural development opportunity for students and City Year UK volunteers at inner city schools. This innovative project is continuing in 2017, working with five schools based in London and the East Midlands.
