Life is full of surprises! Imagine this: Before I started my internship, I discovered BEEE Creative's work at Middlesex University's event in 2021 called "Gradstock." It was like finding a hidden gem! 😄
Fast forward to today, where I find myself immersed with Perform Transform project. I get to work not only with Carrie Washington and her team but also with artists, museums, and communities. It's like joining a big creative family! This makes me feel connected and excited about my job because I'm contributing to a bigger picture. 🌟
The essence of sharing, something I've embedded from my time with BEEE CREATIVE, has become my guiding principle.
As I shadowed Carrie, I learned that effective management isn't just about having a clear purpose and commitment; it's about communicating these values to the people who join us on this thrilling journey. It's a lesson in the art of reaching out to communities, enriching my own explorations, and expanding our impact.
"To succeed, we need to expand our value - and not just for the individuals who are already relevant. We need to matter to more people if we want our work to shine." (The Art of Relevance by Nina Simon) 🌠
All these ideas have inspired me to be more creative and look at things from different angles. No matter what happens in the future, I know this experience will make me a better artist and a more enlightened human being💫.
