Last month we ran a competition to give Creative Employment Programme participants a chance to win tickets to the Creative & Cultural Skills Annual Conference, worth £400 each. To enter, participants were required to write a blog, take a photo or make a short video explaining the best thing about their placement. Over the next few posts, we’ll introduce each of the winning entries – we hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
John Hamilton May, who was an Audience Engagement Intern at Rural Arts, won us over with his image (above) and accompanying caption of Judy, just one of the many amazing people he met during his placement. We can only assume they felt the same way about john, as he now has a full-time role as Communications and Engagement Officer at Rural Arts. Over to John…
Here is a photo of one of my favourite ladies ever, Judy Dixon.
As part of my placement as Audience Engagement Intern at Rural Arts, I helped volunteers like Judy – a promoter of almost twenty years – bring high-quality live arts to their village halls. Here she is jiving away at the amazing Spiltmilk say Dance.
