Through this internship I hope to assist with and further learn how to successfully develop short term and long term events. I have already worked on two events for the Fringe. One event was a marketing workshop for the artists involved with the festival. I had the opportunity to plan and execute a live stream for the artists from out of town. In addition to working at the workshop, I had the chance to sit in on the event and listen to the guest speaker.
A project I am helping with is assisting the Fringe to get more sponsors. So, I have been meeting with many business owners to discuss buying ads in the festival’s program. These skills in communication and negotiation will be crucial to my career, and I am grateful to be able to start fine tuning them now.
