Creative Internships Blog Week 25

Clio Ryan, The Gate Arts Centre

It’s been another busy month, and I think I’m starting to realise that there probably won’t ever be a quiet month with this job.  Every quiet moment is a moment to step back and once you do, ideas and possibilities flood in to fill any empty space.

Recently, I’ve tried to look at the bigger picture, and as a result am keen to improve our systems for individual giving and corporate sponsorship. Attending a session with A&B Cymru yesterday on successful sponsorship strategies, I feel a renewed determination to make sponsorship work for The Gate, and it was incredibly helpful that A&B Cymru had invited Pat Ashman of Principality Building Society to come and talk to us. It was a fantastic opportunity to ask questions and hammer out any queries attendees had, punctuated by practical tasks to make sure we could apply our new knowledge.

I’ve also really benefited this month from working with The Funding Centre, where I have learnt so much that is applicable to my work at The Gate. Going through the process of putting together a membership scheme, I have also found a renewed sense of urgency in working on something similar with The Gate.
