Creative Internships Blog Week 20

Clio Ryan, The Gate Arts Centre

It seems hard to believe that already the internship is coming to the half-way point. Only working 3 days a week for The Gate, weeks go by much faster and a month is only 12 working days meaning that prioritising time is a crucial skill. Preparing a document for trustees summarising all fundraising that has taken place since I started and planned for the coming months, it slightly shocked me to see in writing all that we had so far managed to get done. I think with this internship, it’s not until you stop to take stock that you realise exactly how far you’ve come or how much you’ve had the chance to learn and build experience.

We continue to be incredibly busy with current fundraising projects focusing on capital needs, exciting new projects and programming and core needs as we build sponsorship, apply to trust and foundations and looking at individual giving that will all hopefully enable us to continue to offer more for the community. It’s all hugely exciting and I honestly can’t wait to see what we can pull off. In the meantime, lots to be getting on with!  If you fancy lending a helping hand and happen to be in the John Lewis upstairs café in coming weeks, vote for the Gate to receive a share of their funding!
