Ex-JCC Student Making Strides Through Art

We are always delighted to hear from ex-Joseph Chamberlain College students, and it’s always a great pleasure to see how they’ve progressed since finishing their studies here.

Nilupa Yasmin left Joseph Chamberlain College in 2014, having studied A-levels in Art & Design, Business Studies and Photography. Nilupa has recently graduated from university with a First Class Honours in Photography.

Having been involved with the Coventry University Degree Show, Nilupa’s work attracted the attention of the Directors of the Coventry Culture 2021 bid team, who have since used her projects to promote Coventry in its bid to become City of Culture 2021. Coventry’s City of Culture bidding team have recently returned from their pitch at the House of Commons, which included a host of Nilupa’s artwork and imagery, backed up by a personalised artist-video.

Nilupa’s success since leaving Joseph Chamberlain College certainly doesn’t end there. She has since landed a commission with The Birmingham Big Art Project, and for the next twelve months has her work on exhibit outside the Library of Birmingham and Symphony Hall.

Nilupa is now looking forward to beginning a new commission in November: the Photo Archive Miners’ ‘Tale of Two Streets’ project; again a component of the Coventry City of Culture 2021 bid.

A big congratulations to Nilupa from all at Joseph Chamberlain College. We really look forward to seeing what you do next.
