        • Csekkold! Festival 2019 - Festival Co-ordinator My role for festival's 2019 edition was to liaise with directors of more than 20 of the best theatres in the Czech Republic and prepare the initial documents for the Artistic Director of the festival so she could decide which plays to put on the festival's program. Prior to that, I had to research the contemporary Czech theatre and make myself familiar with the theatre scene. The research consisted of the current programmes of theatre festivals, National Theatre Awards for past two years and others. A major part of the role was the grant I applied for on behalf of the Czech Centre Budapest accredited by the Ministry of Culture in the Czech Republic. I had to complete grant's official forms, create the budget, make festival’s detailed programme, a project plan and request letters of recommendation and cooperation from Joszef Katona Theatre in Budapest. In March 2019, I received a message that the grant was successful. EUNIC Hungary - Organisation Coordinator During my time at the Czech Centre Budapest, their presidency in EUNIC Hungary cluster started. Over time my role developed into a management role of the main coordinator of the cluster. I was running the meetings and the communication within the cluster, in a later stage I was the main person in the process of updating the cluster documentation (Charter & Strategy). EUNIC Hungary gave me a rare experience by enabling me to work with international diplomats working in the fields of art and culture and dealing with the high state officials. I also experienced and learnt how to deal with international diplomatic problems.

        • In summer 2018, I started working as a show representative for BAM!BAM!BAM! Productions based in Liverpool. One of the major events, I was repping for them, was Wolves in the Throne Room in Invisible Wind Factory. From being the contact person on the day, I had also liaised with the venue crew, tour managers, and supporting bands. Also, I had to manage the box office and all the staff that was working in the venue and collected the riders prior to the event. Having the opportunity to rep shows, has given me an insightful understanding of managing events from a detailed point of view. It enabled me to improve myself when delivering my own events or events on behalf of someone else, by paying extra attention to every human aspect taking part in the process of preparing an event. As we all work as a team.
