A participant's reflections on Watts Creatives:

"I’ve loved being a part of Watts Creatives. I really enjoyed the opportunity to work with a gallery and I liked how the project coincided with the exhibition. Interviewing Ed Boxall was of course a highlight and a really unique opportunity so thankyou for that. I’ve learnt a lot about how the gallery worked and I especially liked the discussion with Lottie from marketing as I didn’t really know a lot about that area. I’m definitely going to look into it as another career option." Find out more on Culture Box Surrey's website.
