Creative Internships Blog Week 28

Week 28: Lucy Purrington, Sherman Theatre

Last month I was fortunate to be invited to observe a CultureStep panel meeting, which gave me an incredible insight into the decision making process of applications. Combining this experience with the recent A&B Cymru ‘5 Steps to Sponsorship Success’ workshop, I’m developing a better understanding of corporate partnerships. Something that I am hoping to utilise in the future.

Contributing to further my training, I’ve attended more Sherman 5 workshops open to Reps and staff; Autism Awareness training from Autism Puzzles Cymru and ‘supporting D/deaf, deafened and hard of hearing audiences’ with Jonny Cotsen. Commissioned by the Arts Council of Wales, Jonny, alongside Rachel Kinchin and Disability Arts Cymru, have created a new online document aiming to help companies and venues make their work and premises more accessible for D/deaf, deafened and hard of hearing audiences. (Link to the ‘toolkit’ can be found at the bottom)

The event I’ve been organising is fast approaching. This has been a particularly informative process, and another opportunity to expand my always increasing list of intern experiences. I’m excited to welcome our guests and hope they enjoy the evening.

In my previous blog, I mentioned that Killology, a co-production between Sherman Theatre and Royal Court Theatre, London was nominated for an Olivier Award in the Outstanding Achievement in Affiliate Theatre category. The Awards took place in early April and we were delighted to have won.
