Thank you!

Strike  a Light – Arts & Heritage would like to say a big Thank You to our University of Sussex Masters placement students who’ve been working with us for the last two months to explore aspects of working in the cultural sector.

Both students are from mainland China and we have learned as much from them as they have from us (hopefully!).

Every year we have a summer placement student and it’s always a huge bonus to have a young, enthusiastic person getting involved bringing fresh ideas with them.

They’ve been responsible for lots of our exciting social media posts recently and have really learned a lot about design as a result.
