Creative Internships Blog Week 21

Bethan Lewis, Artes Mundi

I've had a busy past month with the Artes Mundi 7 conference and awards at the end of January. Alongside this we hosted two PLUS Tate events, when directors of the Plus Tate network galleries came to Cardiff for the conference, awards and various other seminars. There has been an enormous amount of press coverage following the announcement of the winner John Akomfrah with his piece 'Auto Da Fé' . Bedwyr Williams was awarded the Derek Williams Purchase Award for his work 'Tyrrau Mawr' which will be on permanent loan to National Museum Cardiff.

The awards were not only the culmination of lots of hard work from the whole team but a great opportunity to maintain existing relationships with sponsors and cultivate new donors and links for the future. This was a great opportunity to develop my own project management and event planning skills. 

I'm in the process of drafting my first trust application and developing exciting corporate partnerships made earlier in the year. We are now in full swing developing fundraising strategies and planning for Artes Mundi 8.
