During summer I had an opportunity to undertake an internship at The Rising Sun Arts Centre in Reading. During This time I have helped with The Move Up Project, within which I was working with people with learning disabilities on various projects. Few of which were the Art and Creative making (painting, and sculpture making towards festival), Zap Magazine- helping them to create a magazine from scratch which would then be published during winter. Zap Comedy – becomes another incredible project within the centre – I have been helping with rehearsing a performance for the Here Comes The Sun festival, which was quite challenging, but very rewarding. We have also started planning Peter Pan for the winter show. The other project which runs within the centre is the Bookface, the art book fair, we have been working towards creating art books for the fair. I have also run a workshop on Paper Crane making, during which we have created a paper crane from 5m x 5m paper.
Here Comes The Sun, becomes an annual festival within the centre which brings our vibrant community together. I have been helping with the preparation for the festival, and during the festival, which was an amazing experience working on such huge event and with an amazing group of people. During the festival I have helped organizing children games and arts, supporting the Zap Comedy group, Photography and helping around the festival.
