The Unlimited team is complete!

Introducing Rosie, our new Unlimited trainee! Over the next year Rosie will be getting stuck in learning about project management, the production process and working alongside disabled artists. It’s a traineeship we’ll be offering three times over the course of the Unlimited programme – each time enabling a disabled person to get that vital hands on experience that can be so hard to access.

We hear how she is settling in at her first few days at the Artsadmin offices.

Everyone has made me feel incredibly welcomed into the Unlimited team, and what an exciting programme to be a part of! The Unlimited team are a talented and interesting bunch, and all really passionate about providing support for disabled artists. The success of the first project in 2012 is outstanding, so I can’t wait to get involved with the next round of supported projects. As a trainee, I’m looking forward to learning about the production and creative process, especially in April, after the successful applications are announced.

For years I worked at Glyndebourne Opera house and this is what sparked my interest in the cultural arts, I loved everything that surrounded the performance, and the timeless experience of ‘opera going’. Cultural arts marketing and funding became the focus of my undergraduate degree, and I knew then that I wanted to pursue a career in the arts.  I hope from the Unlimited traineeship I can gather the skills I need to build a career as an arts producer and learn more about disability-led art along the way.

Unlimited is an amazing opportunity for everyone involved, and I am very grateful to be part of it, and an added bonus, is that at the Artsadmin offices there is always an abundance of biscuits and tasty treats…what more could you ask for?
