A Great First-Time Experience

Before this experience, I had no idea how I would get the experience I needed to move forward in my desired field without having the right connections. ArtBound Initiative gave me the foot in the door that I needed, placing me in an international internship experience with the Hong Kong Contemporary Art Foundation. Thanks to the internship on my resume, I was accepted to multiple graduate programs in London, UK. I am currently studying to receive my MFA in Curating at Goldsmiths, University of London. This program changes your life.

How can this program be improved?
In looking back, the only things I found a slight bit disappointing was that because my fellow ABI member, Hugh, and I were the first from ABI to go to Hong Kong, there were little resources and events available to us in the city. We were on our own for most of our time there. Additionally, while I enjoyed my internship at HOCA, I think now I would have preferred a position within a gallery or art institution. What I was doing with that internship wasn't really what I needed to be learning. However, I still learned SO much from my time there and I would gladly do it all over again.

AbI Internship Experience

I spent a couple months in Hong Kong for an internship within the creative industry in 2017. It was a very rewarding experience as I was able to grow not only professionally but also further develop my creative skills. The work environment was amazing, I learned interesting day to day operations about the advertising world and how I best fit in that world. This fitting experience wouldn't of been possible without the help of ABI. They aided me with placement of the internship , housing accommodations, and the travel experience to Asia. Through their support I had a great experience and am looking forward to go back and reconnect with all the friends I made and networks I have built.

Wonderful Opportunity

I recently finished my 3-month graphic design internship with an excellent advertising agency in busy Hong Kong, and the ArtBound Initiative team has been great accommodating me before, during, and after my program. They provide access, where there is usually little or none at all, to creative opportunities, growing experiences, and global networks. With the support on all sides, it's a good chance to build a solid foundation for yourself.

It was a hard process, but it was also a rewarding step in the creative industry, and the ArtBound Initiative team stuck by me for the journey. No matter where you are personally and professionally, I would recommend considering their internship programs.
