macrobert Intern Eilidh’s blog – week 1


I’m Eilidh, I’ve just started a part time internship here at Macrobert and just getting to grips with the many new faces and torrents of info about the inner workings of all the events here especially the Mpower project. So far I’ve had the tour and seen backstage including behind the scenes area of the Main House where I got to see a giant alphabet block and a 12 foot clock (not bad for the first half hour!). I’ve also been told about many and varying projects on at the moment only a fraction of which I can actually remember right now along with perhaps three out of fifteen people I’ve been introduced to. As far as I can see my role here over the next few weeks will be helping on the Mpower project (more of this in a sec), the Film House short film preview project and general dogsbody around the office. I am especially exited about the Mpower project as it sets out to empower (oh wow I just got that!) kids from 12 to 17 in the field of the arts including film, theatre, dance, and performing arts. This project is run by, organised and for these kids and looks like an amazing project to be involved in. Also the fact that as a member of the Macrobert I now get free tickets to certain events is quite nice as well! Anyhoo hopefully the next couple of entries will find me able to find my way around without getting lost too much while also remembering what it is I’m supposed to be doing at any given moment.. TTFN!
