Walkers Ireland and visual artist Kate Nolan are pleased to have been highly commended in this evening's Business to Arts Awards under Best Use of Creativity in the Workplace supported by ESB for our Photographer-in-Residence 2017 - 2020 programme in partnership with CBS Westland Row and the Docklands Arts Fund

Speaking at the awards, Minister for Tourism and Culture Catherine Martin, said: "Culture is what drives us all in our lives and our workplaces should reflect that." Minister Martin also commented: "Ní neart go cur le chéile" or "There is no strength without unity." 

By working together and developing a meaningful partnership with Kate Nolan and CBS Westland Row, Walkers staff and the participating students benefitted from the collaboration and creativity that the Photographer-in-Residence programme achieved. 

The Awards, which were hosted by An Post and livestreamed by the Irish Times from the historic GPO, are now available to play back here: 2021 Business to Arts Awards | The Irish Times.

Congratulations to CEO Andrew Hetherington, Chair Davina Saint and all of the team at Business to Arts, MC and broadcaster Dearbhail McDonald, An Post CEO David McRedmond and all involved in this evening's event. It was a unique experience to come together virtually with the business and arts community across Ireland and learn about the many strong partnerships while enjoying great performances by soprano Ava Dodd and the Defence Forces Army Band.
