Southbank Centre, Four Corners and The Production Exchange join Creative Access as media partners
This month, Creative Access are delighted to welcome Southbank Centre, Four Corners and The Production Exchange to our growing network of media partners.
Southbank Centre is a world-famous arts centre on the South Bank of the Thames. Created in 1951 for the Festival of Britain, Southbank Centre draws on its heritage as a festival site, with art and activities inside and outside. They encourage everyone to become involved in the arts in new and creative ways and offer a wide range of cultural events throughout the year in music, dance, art, performance and spoken word.
Southbank Centre approached us in April looking for a Corporate Communications and PR intern. Roehampton graduate Omolara successfully secured the internship which she is due to start later this month. Omolara said “I initially found out about Creative Access through social media. Since becoming an intern, I have found the whole process really smooth.
Creative Access have kept me informed and provided insight and targeted support throughout. They are doing fantastic work and I am absolutely excited to be moving forward with them!”
Four Corners is a learning, production and exhibition centre for film and photography. They support new talent to established practitioners, enabling work that challenges and inspires. Four Corners were looking for an Administrative and Gallery Assistant who was looking to get an insight into the film and photography sector. Fred secured the role and has since completed his first month in the internship.
Fred says “Prior to my internship I was struggling to find work, and I was doing short courses here and there to try and build my skill set. I found out about Creative Access through a former colleague and the first impressions of my internship were positive, my colleagues are very friendly and welcoming; I am thoroughly enjoying my placement so far.”
The Production Exchange’s shows have included Number 1 national tours, productions in London’s West End, at prestigious off West End venues including the Park Theatre and at major regional venues across the country. The company also runs a talent agency for performers, directors, writers, choreographers and musical directors. As a registered charity, their objectives support early career practitioners in the furthering of their skills and access to resources to develop their craft.
The Production Exchange approached us in April and were looking for a Production Development Intern to help them assist with the planning and implementing of a wide range of their touring projects. Royal Holloway graduate, Nadira secured the internship and she will be involved with assisting the team with their Women of Hope production tour which highlights the issue of domestic abuse and violence in the British Asian community.
We are extremely excited to see all of our interns develop their careers with these three amazing media partners.
