Review for Creative Migration, Inc., Los Angeles, CA, USA
I have worked with Creative Migration as an intern for one month at their new cultural and civic hub, Bangkok 1899. It has been a true delight to work with everyone at the facility and I have learned so much regarding sustainability, social work, and how to spark change in local communities. During my internship, I focused on preparing communications and branding for the 60 Second Film Festival which Creative Migration is partnering with, along with integrating sustainability into this upcoming event. I conducted research on environmentally conscious filmmaking and learned from previous case studies that exemplify best practices. From this research, I could bring something to the table that matched the values and ideals of both Creative Migration and the 60 Second Film Festival while improving the way it was being presented. In tandem with the communications work that I did, I also assisted in archiving and coordinating hundreds of images that document the restoration of Bangkok 1899. These images showcase the history of the facility and allowed me to have a unique perspective while working there. I was able to use my previous experience to migrate and organise these valuable images in a coherent manner even though we encountered setbacks and technological difficulties along the way. Whenever we hit a slow point in one area of work, there was always something else that I could work on, one of these things was social media! I finalised reports on audience engagement for the various accounts that Creative Migration has and I helped analyze the results. These statistics were necessary for some of the presentations with the 60 Second FIlm Festival, so I also worked on integrating them. I'm so grateful that I had this opportunity and was able to make a difference in both the internal workings of Bangkok 1899 and their more external partnerships through Creative Migration. I'm also very thankful for the kindness, understanding, and enthusiasm that Susannah, Abigail, and Ying exhibited during my internship. The Creative Migration team is a wonderful bunch and their events are meaningful in ways that the world really needs right now throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and the climate crisis.
