Read about Rosie’s experience
Rosie volunteered at Rosetta Arts for 6 weeks this summer as a Marketing Project leader. The Rosetta Art Centre is a visual art centre based in East London established in 1993. The centre seeks to transform lives by bringing down barriers and providing access to quality visual art education for children, young people and adults.
As the Marketing Project leader, Rosie was involved with the planning and devising marketing strategies and the promotion of the centre to other organisations at local events. She was also in charge of implementing a social media strategy, and creating marketing literature.
Since completing her project, Rosie has actually secured a role as a part-time PA to the CEO of Rosetta Arts and has been encouraged to apply for STEP, which is a year-long internship between two creative/cultural organisation such as Bow Arts, Sadlers Wells Theatre, the London College of Fashion and Rosetta Arts.
Here’s what she had to say:
“It was great being able to have free reign on the charity’s Instagram account which allowed me to implement a social media strategy based around themes of each week. I enjoyed being able to be creative whilst still completing tasks. I have also made very valuable friendships and professional relationships and have enjoyed being part of the team.”
