I work as a freelance arts journalist for The Artifice, an online magazine platform and write other articles on a freelance basis. I also work for South Street Arts Centre as a House Attendant and Key Holder. Hence, I am interested in pursuing a career in communications and/or journalism within the Arts sector. My former job roles have equipped me with a wide range of skills and knowledge including but not restricted to project organization, proof-reading, marketing, administration, customer service, mentoring, literacy, community work, social media, communications and creativity.
South Street Arts Centre is an Arts venue that showcases a diverse range of performing arts from both the professional and community sectors. My duties as a House Attendant include promoting our events, welcoming customers, processing financial transactions and assisting the artists and managers on duty. As a Key Holder my duties focus extensively on conducting office administration duties and working directly with community artists.
The Artifice is an online magazine that covers a wide spectrum of Art forms. To date I have written an article about Raymond Carver’s work and the short story and am currently working on a new piece which examines Roxanne Gay’s perspective on feminism. I also network with the online writing community, edit their articles and give regular feedback.
When I graduated from Goldsmiths in 2011 I approached SL Volunteers about the possibility of working abroad in Sri Lanka and establishing a new teaching project. After talking to the team and other professionals involved with international work, we managed to secure a placement at The Ceylon School for the Deaf in Sri Lanka. There I taught Deaf children of different ages and abilities and recruited and trained new volunteers to work at the school.
I undertook an internship in the Marketing department at Pegasus Theatre in the summer of 2013 and developed a marketing campaign for Phizzical’s 2013 production of Cymbeline, alongside regular administration duties which included archiving documents and spreadsheets, social networking, editing images, fundraising research, customer service and developing marketing materials.
The Discover Children Story Centre is designed to facilitate and encourage children to engage with literature and the art of storytelling. As a writer and reader, storytelling is a core aspect of my everyday life and so I fully appreciate Discover Children Story Centre’s values and objectives. In my role as a House Assistant I helped to ensure the smooth running of the centre and thus maintain high visitor satisfaction.
In 2010 I was selected by the London International Festival of Theatre team to work with the Nalaga’at team, based in Israel. I trained with the team at their base and then worked with them at the Artdepot during their international run in London. Afterwards I stayed on at the Artsdepot as a House Attendant. In both roles I worked with a wide range of people and developed excellent communication skills.
