Creative Internships Blog Week 29

Week 29: Maddie Towell, Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama

Summer has officially started, the sun is out, the students are back and we have the new Summer What’s On booklet, with the new performance programme.  It’s set to be another great term at the College, with exciting events, spectacular performances and the Arts & Business Cymru Awards!  I can’t wait.

This month was another whirlwind of activities.  At the start of the month I delivered my first ever sponsorship proposal and I’m happy to say it was a success!   Shortly following this, I found out that my trust application, to help support new writing was also a success!  This promptly resulted in me dancing round the office happily for a full five minutes!

Sadly, it can’t all be dancing in excitement, sometimes we do have to sit at our desks and get some very important jobs done.  I spent a lot of this month working with both the development team and the marketing team, developing a list of external people, who would need contacting about big news stories.  This was extremely useful as this month we’ve been able to announce the appointment of a new College Principal, Professor Helena Gaunt.  Whilst this was incredibly exciting news, it also meant all systems go trying to send the announcement out externally.  The list I’d been working on came in extremely handy!

As I say nearly every month – it’s been another fantastic month and full of new experiences – my advice to others is never expect two days to ever be the same!
