Creative Bootcamp

Part II until March 2023

Big thanks to everyone who joined the first part of Creative Bootcamp – we hope you enjoyed it!

We now move on to the second part and look forward to welcoming new Bootcampers, who want to learn more about the practical side of photography and participate in the final exhibition about women in rail (either as a photographer or producer).

We have a number of workshops and talks with Heroines lined up as well as more visits to see some fabulous exhibitions of work by women – all planned to help you develop your own photographic voice.

Thanks to the support of the GWR Community Fund, all materials, training and travel for field trips are free,

Note:  This is an opportunity only for women.

We also have a limited number of travel bursaries to cover the costs of attending these workshops. If you would like to know more, please email
