Last week the Art department held a progression conference for our Arts students. The event was extremely well attended, with 165 students taking part. Loreto would like to thank Denise Bowler, from the Whitworth Art Gallery, for offering our students valuable insights into the opportunities for volunteering and progression with the Whitworth Art Gallery and its associated programmes. A huge thank you also to all our Alumni, who kindly returned from their studies and careers, to give Professional advice sessions after the main event. From portfolio building and navigating university life, to securing a job in the creative industries, their first-hand knowledge was inspirational to all those who attended.
