SNOWDONIA ARTS FESTIVAL
Snowdonia Arts Festival (SAF) knew that in order to sustain themselves as a successful festival project planning skills were essential. They sought the help of a business adviser who could work with them to produce a project plan that could act as a template to drive forward and make a success of future festivals. Christine was working in her role as Manager for Contracts and Tender at Coleg Llandrillo (CL). She sought an opportunity to enhance her personal interest and knowledge of the festival as well as to improve links between CL and the festival. A successful template has indeed been produced and can be used to cover all areas of event management and budgeting. In addition, Christine was able to extend links between CL and SAF by bringing student volunteers into the festival. Christine has maintained her links with the festival and now works as part of the festival committee as well as a volunteer during the festival.
'I have gained experience and appreciate the demands on volunteer individuals who come together to arrange the festival. I have observed the attention to detail and the high standards achieved. I am now in my third year with the festival and am learning how we can build on success and learn lessons from previous years.' Christine Evans
