“I always loved being around art, and this is the reason why I was driven to apply for an internship at RMIT Gallery. I discovered working for this gallery means sharing a very good time with creative people in a creative environment. I am really satisfied with this period at RMIT Gallery; my days have been colored by different communicative tasks starting from the editing of different publishing platforms, through to promoting events on many different media platforms such as Instagram, Twitter, Facebook,  Eventbrite – even podcast design.

The part that I loved was playing an active role in the pursuit of the Gallery’s mission: that is a space for artistic growth and experimentation. I got the opportunity to have dialogues with contemporary artists. As an international student, it allowed me the opportunity to better appreciate Australia’s rich artistic culture. Coherently with the University’s purposes, the team at RMIT Gallery reflects RMIT’s ethos, in a positive and participatory spirit, and supports me on my journey and learning. My curiosity has been stimulated in the arts, and this is certainly the most valuable experience I had as an intern. 

My personal challenge was to develop the ability to transform creative ideas into reality, and I’m able to see on the gallery’s website  provides a strong e-communicative skill. In conclusion I feel enriched by this experience – I had a great opportunity to learn from everybody and discover a new way of approaching art, and realised how I could play an active role in being part of the decision making process in the artworld. ”
