Creative Internships Blog Week 35

Clio Ryan, Artes Mundi

This month’s post is short and sweet as I am about to head off for a week for the first time since Christmas and have lots to do before then! Tasks that once daunted me now feel like second nature and so responsibility has increased steadily! Speaking with friends and peers, I have begun to notice that I am starting to talk with a knowledge and experience of fundraising that I never thought I could attain in such short time and this thrills me no end!

As the months speed by, I find it hard to believe that my time as a Creative Intern is drawing to a close and I can’t imagine not being a part of the Artes Mundi team. But as I begin the next chapter, working with my business mentor to maximise impact on my C.V., I can’t help looking back at my new achievements and skills in awe that I have developed so much in the past months, and in what has felt like such a short time I have become skilled to pursue a career that I never could have this time one year ago. I know this will sound incredibly cliché but I can’t help mulling over in my mind: give a man a fish, you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for life. Well, teach a woman to fundraise, and she can do anything in the world!
