Meet Lauren: Arts & Cultural Management MA


Studying at King’s is such an incredible opportunity because you’ve got loads of fantastic cultural organisations right on your doorstep but also because King’s has incredible links with those organisations and also lots of smaller ones around both London and the country because it’s such a well-known institution. I took part in an internship with Fantasy High Street who are an experiential performance arts events organisation. I found out about the internship on the CMCI Facebook page that was advertising internship opportunities for students. They’re a really small organisation so it was really interesting to learn what working in an organisation of that size, on the ground in the arts, organising events, how that all works. It was a really, really invaluable experience. I also took part in the King’s Cultural Challenge while I was studying for the MA. It’s a university-wide competition, you have to come up with a pitch on your vision for a cultural event or a cultural programme. All of the finalists were actually given a presentation workshop: how to pitch your ideas, how to get your point across in the most compelling way, and that was so useful, especially because I was looking at going into interviews for jobs after my degree and just having that training beforehand was so useful both for the cultural challenge and then everything else that came after.
