I’m Shona Thompson, I’m 17 years old and I’m from Lancaster. My interests vary from theatre and film making, to journalism and dance.
My IGNITE placement is at DT3, at The Dukes Theatre in Lancaster, as Trainee Creative Learning Practitioner. My main duties and responsibilities include:
- Helping produce Blaze Festival 2012
- Manage and deliver the Blaze Bloggers Programme
- Attending the Blaze Forum
- Attending other Blaze meetings e.g. delivery meeting/board meetings
This year, I would like to achieve deeper learning in working within the creative arts whilst being supported. As I am running the Blaze Bloggers programme, I would like to ensure that it is run to the best of my abilities with a wider audience having access and viewing the blogs that are created.
I hope Ignite will help me to develop my understanding of working in a creative environment, working as project manager and give me great experience and understanding within the creative work industry and help me gain confidence, putting me on the right path for my future.
