Creative Internships Blog Week 14

Sophie Potter, Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama

A short blog post for the week. As expected, the pace of life as an intern at RWCMD has picked up dramatically in a very short space of time. The contrast between the pre-Christmas lull and the January rush is both exciting and nerve-wracking. In the countdown to our very prestigious VIP event, all hands are on deck to make sure the evening and ancillary events run smoothly – with great care being taken over the tiniest details. Everything from invitations, to the production, to menus, to guest profiling and booking hotels takes time, and requires such careful attention to detail. Being a part of a team organising an event of this magnitude is a once in a lifetime opportunity, one which will mean that all events organisation in the future will seem like a very easy task!

As predicted, time is moving very quickly, and it is difficult to believe we are already coming to the end of the fourth month of the internship. Last week, the other 4 interns and I met up for the first time since the start of our internship, and it is comforting to be able to share experiences with other interns going through the same process – even though our organisations and tasks seem to be very varied. As mentioned by all of us, the A&B Cymru Creative Internship is an excellent springboard into the world of the Arts, and is proving to be an incredible experience in building up skills in all different areas.
