"I completed a Marketing Internship with Dayglo Ventures in New York. Dayglo oversees numerous music-orientated companies including the Brooklyn Bowls, LOCKN’ Festival, Relix Magazine and The Rock & Roll Playhouse. The majority of my work was focused on LOCKN’ festival and the Rock and The Roll Playhouse – which provide interactive live-music experiences for children.
"My main roles were to track the social media impressions of both of these ventures, conduct market research for upcoming venue openings, build online competitions and write copy for social media and blog posts. The highlight of this internship was the team I had the honor of working with. I spent my days surrounded by people who not only loved music, but dedicated their entire lives to it. I was able to represent Relix at some incredible gigs and found myself fully immersed into New York’s live music scene."

"Interning with Dayglo allowed me to apply and refine the skills I have built through my studies and previous positions. Most of all, my experience fostered confidence and determination to launch my career in the music industry. I will be moving forward with a strong understanding of the industry, confidence in my skills well and a strong, supportive network in Australia and in New York."

"The support that Artbound Initiative provided prior, during and after my internship made the entire process so much smoother. I could not imagine having to navigate international internship applications and visa processes on my own.
It was also so lovely to know I would have support system waiting for me when I arrived in New York and that I’d leave with a huge professional network as well. With this support and experience backing me up, I am confident and eager to enter the workforce."
