WORK EXPERIENCE

Festival Host | Frequency Festival October 2017

The Frequency Festival focuses on digital and cultural arts through the form of an art festival.

This experience allowed me to gain the skills to pick up information about art pieces and inform the general public about the pieces.

Gallery Assistant | Sea Pictures Gallery June 2017

Sea Pictures Gallery is a small business that originates from an online website, transforming into a gallery 8 years ago.

During this experience, I learnt the skills to code the gallery's website through adding artist’s pages and artworks onto their page. This has given me the skills to edit websites in the future.

I had the opportunity to measure artworks and curate the gallery placing artworks in different positions. The older work had to be packed away which allowed me to pack them away safely which I will take with me into future jobs.
