During the 15th - 19th of August, I was on the Festival Makers Programme at Unlimited Festival at the Southbank Centre. Each day of the week there were talks from different departments at Southbank Centre about Budgeting, Contracts, Health and Safety, Event Planning and Scheduling, and Technical and Production.

On the first day our task was to set three goals.

The goals I set were to:

  • Meet new people / make new connections on social media
  • Understand the art of putting on an event
  • Learn vent management and public speaking

The talks that I most enjoyed during the week were Event Planning and Scheduling, and Health and Safety. 

On the last day of the training we did a session using the Gamelan Instruments, which was the highlight for me.
