Creative Internships Blog Week 15

Bethan Lewis, Artes Mundi

Blwyddyn Newydd Dda!

January is a very busy time in the Artes Mundi calendar as we are building up to the final few months of the exhibition and in two weeks the announcement of the winner of Artes Mundi 7. 

The prize awarding event preparation has been underway for some weeks and I’ve spent a large portion on my time making sure that we have key sponsors and funders represented at the awards. This is an exciting opportunity to show the exhibition and the prize at its best and has the potential to lead to new support. I’ve also been on hand to help organise the event and liaise with the production teams and PR team that will help to co-ordinate the night. 

During this preparation I have also been working on various individual giving strategies. We have seen the success of Artes Mundi’s Big Give campaign, as well as developing other individual giving schemes in time for the awards event in two weeks. I have been researching potential corporate partners going forward into the next prize and looking at developing current partnerships with corporates. 

I think it’s natural for the beginning of a new year to bring reflection and anticipation for what's to come but I feel like this year will see me continually learning new skills, training and personal development in 2017.
