In December 2015 I volunteered at the Southbank Centre's Winter Festival. My role was to get the public involved in the extensive range of events on offer at the festival. I also had to respond to important questions about the space on a regular basis, meaning I had to learn the geography of the 21 acre site quickly.
A 3 month internship at The Brick Lane Gallery in Shoreditch, East London. The working environment was fast paced (particularly prior to exhibition openings) and I was often required to respond to numerous tasks simultaneously. Responsibilities included: - Researching Artists and inviting them to exhibit at the gallery via email - Helping with the content published on the gallery's various social media platforms from time to time - Assisting at exhibition openings (serving wine, ensuring artists are being looked after) - Opening and closing of the gallery - Packing/unpacking of works - Installation of works - Preparing the gallery space(s) for exhibition openings - Taking phone calls if the manager was unavailable - Running errands
