"Working at Project Arts Centre was a wholly fantastic and enlightening experience, which has opened up many opportunities for me. Through my position as assistant curator my skill base expanded substantially, I learned a huge amount, and worked with amazing people. It allowed me to really see inside a multidisciplinary arts centre, and gain a thorough understanding of how such an institution functions. As part of the team, I was continually excited and inspired by the ideas and enthusiasm with which Project Arts Centre is fuelled."

"What a privilege to have been part of the highly skilled, dedicated, professional team that drives Project Arts Centre. I found the experience to be significant in terms of my career as well as personally fulfilling with a generosity that recognised and supported my own ambitions. Working in the context of an arts centre adds an extra dynamic, full of diversity, and an objective view of the visual arts that is invaluable."
