Creative Internships Blog Week 40

Louisa Turner, Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama

I can’t believe I am writing my final blog. It seems only yesterday that I wrote my first and I had an exciting 10 months ahead of me. Now I’ve got 2 weeks left of the internship and I can honestly say it’s been such a brilliant and worthwhile experience.

I have learnt such an awful lot about fundraising for the arts. I’ve learnt a huge amount of new skills and also learnt more about myself.

I am so pleased to say that I will be staying on at the College for another year as maternity cover for the Development Officer. The timing couldn’t be better and I’m very grateful that my colleagues have the confidence in me to stay on and take on this new challenge and responsibility.

I am also extremely pleased to say that I have had a success with one of my Trust applications! One of my main goals during the internship was to bring in some money for the College and make a financial contribution, so I’m really happy I’ve been able to achieve this.

My final words will just be to say a huge thank you to Arts and Business Cymru for setting up such a fantastic scheme and looking after us so well. The training they’ve provided to us has been invaluable and I wish the next cohort of interns the very best of luck.
