Early this week, we were very sad to say goodbye to our incredible Arts Management intern Kathryn Bennett. Kathryn started with us in August last year and it has been a pleasure to work with. She has been instrumental in establishing City Arts’ Young Producers and organising their fantastic exhibition. Kathryn will continue to be involved with the group.

Here’s what she had to say about her time working with City Arts:

“My time at City Arts has been incredibly informative. As a graduate leaving university nowadays, you emerge into a job market that’s more competitive than ever, and it takes just one organisation taking a chance on you to get you started, which is what City Arts has done for me.

I have had experience managing project and running creative workshops for young people on the Express Yourself programme. I’ve arranged events for young creatives in the local area and helped shape the Young Producers. I got to assist in workshops with fantastic people from all walks of life such as with Afrovibes and the Women’s Cultural Exchange. It has been a really useful opportunity to gain real experience practicing copywriting, photography and using social media for an organisation.

Internships are becoming increasingly common as fair and paid jobs, which offer a lot for people just starting out, and I heartily recommend them for anyone trying to get ahead in the Creative Industry.”
