Creative Internships Blog Week 42

Hephzibah Leafe, Venue Cymru 

One final blog as I leave Venue Cymru after 10 wonderful months as an A & B Cymru Creative Intern…

It is Monday 8th August and coming in to work today, I felt emotional knowing it to be my final week at Venue Cymru as an A&B Cymru Intern. After having a week holiday in Scotland, I am feeling very refreshed for my final week here.

My final major fundraising task was to complete a grant application for a proposed Textile and Art project for ages 50+, building upon Venue Cymru’s work with young people and expanding our outreach to a different age group.  I will have to eagerly wait to hear the outcome in October, after I have finished working at Venue Cymru.

The task of sifting through my work on my computer made me realise just how much I have worked on over the last 10 months and how much I have progressed from my first week back in August.

I am very grateful to Arts & Business Cymru for allowing me to take on this experience and I’m delighted to have been the first Intern in North Wales. I am really going to miss the team at Venue Cymru, who welcomed me right from the start. I’m pleased that I am keeping my connections here, already having signed up to help at take pART8 in January 2017!

So, I’d like to say one final thank you to everyone involved in making the Internship the best experience I could have asked for!

Diolch yn fawr iawn pawb!
