ABI Profile: Rose
is a is an arts manager based in Dublin who is studying a BA in Visual Culture from the National College of Art & Design, Dublin. She recently completed her arts management internship at Momentum Worldwide in Berlin this summer.
"I was placed with Momentum Worldwide located in Kunstquartier Bethanien, Berlin. They are a non for profit gallery that centers around time-based art and video art. It was founded by Rachel Rits-Volloch back in 2010."
"During my internship, I ran both their Instagram and Facebook pages, creating content and establishing a media schedule that promoted their exhibition Water(Proof). I also helped organize the exhibitions by contacting artists on a daily basis. I had the opportunity to interview artists in their studios as another way to provide content for the gallery. My internship served as a way to network and establish connections, but also as a way for me to improve my writing skills."
ABI Members Rose, Harriet & Ena
"My confidence has grown so much because of this internship. While before I would have said that I think I am good at something, I can now say that I am good at it. I have met some amazing people in Berlin, through meeting the other interns in ABI, but also with my work at Momentum Worldwide. Having these connections will help me find future internships or work."
"From helping me find a great internship placement to getting the chance to meet and network with amazing people, ABI has helped me in so many different ways. I am more comfortable working in an arts environment, with skills that prove that I am capable of good work. The idea of moving through this industry is daunting. With connections now abroad, I can start to create that professional network that is so vital in this industry."
