"I have watched many of my friends struggling to find a job in the arts, unable to continue to do something that they love. But as a result of CG's Creative Apprentice Programme I am not one of those people and I am so grateful for that!”.
- Laura Deave, Arts Admin Intern, Artspace Cinderford -
“Create Gloucestershire seems to truly offer a spirit of change, a feeling of optimism and that great achievements are possible in a time when so much feels impossible. Artists and organisations are more outward-looking, seizing new opportunities for entrepreneurship and brokering new alliances”.
- Gordon Scott, Prema Arts Centre -
“As always the level of critical debate, new perspective & gentle challenge you foster by your approach makes attending any of your events a real tonic for a jobbing arts bureaucrat.”
- Raj Patel, Relationship Manager, Arts Council South West -
"My recent exposure to commissioning based on an alternative context, informed by the place and relevance of arts and culture, has challenged me down to my commissioning roots!”
- Senior Commissioner, NHS Gloucestershire -
“Create Gloucestershire has delivered some excellent training opportunities that have helped me shape Flow Contemporary Arts into what it is now. One particular workshop enabled me to reflect in a positive useful way about what we could be doing in the arts. I realised we are NOT drowning, we are waving – we must celebrate what we have to offer and share it.”
