Progress of a kind

In my pursuit of finding the place where I fit I have applied for a few internships. The first was the commutations and research internship with UN Women. Unfortunately, having spent hours writing a cover letter and laboriously covering all the selection criteria did not equal being accepted into the program. But we have to try. Perhaps the next opening I will be more qualified for, or I will have had more experience. I was disappointed yet I still believe that a break will come eventually.

The second internship/volunteer position I have gone for is at CCAS (Canberra Contemporary Art Space). I’m fascinated by curatorship, so I’m hoping I can gain some experience in that area. I figure that if I have any hope of finding my place in the creative world I have to try things. I will know if and what I will need to study next depending on the experiences I have. That’s why its vital I try things and volunteer.

I am also hoping that the Belconnen Arts Centre will get back to me soon after having spoken to my referees. By volunteering there I could also get a taste of curating and working in a gallery.

Editia Publishing may be a place that I can intern with in the future. I looked into working with them but there wasn’t any help needed at the time. But I’ve made the connections so hopefully I will be thought of in the future. And if none of those work out I will surely find other programs.
