The school of Visual Arts is collaborating with the schools of Languages and Performing arts to set up a competition for our talented photography students to create the photographic images that celebrate these areas. We are planning to use some original photography in their classrooms in a permanent hang in the college. We want to give our classrooms a strong visual identity of the subjects we teach in these areas.
If you have studied photography with us at City Lit in the past, or if you have recently embarked on a course in photography with us, and would like to enter the competition, please see the brief below:

Taru completed the City Lit Holistic Massage course just to dip a toe and see where it could lead. In the end it led to new opportunities for her practise.
You too can have a go by joining us on a beginners' massage course. We aim to inspire you and ignite your passion just like we did for Taru.
Recently, we opened the City Lit Wellbeing Centre. This newly refurbished facility is where our Health and Wellbeing courses are taught in London. We are offering taster courses if you want to come and see this amazing space for yourself and get a feel of what it's like to learn at City Lit.
