During each episode, Olly Double interviews a Kent drama graduate working in the arts about their careers and how they established themselves within the sector; from graduation up to the present day, Olly discusses how their degree helped prepare them for their creative careers.
Olly Double interviews Kent Drama graduate San Malhi about her work as the Production Administrator at the Kiln Theatre in Kilburn, London.
San has so many useful things to say about managing the transition from university life to the world of work, giving great advice about taking up opportunities, networking and valuing yourself enough to dare to ask for what you want.
She talks passionately about the importance of improving inclusivity in the arts, how an organisation called Creative Access got her a crucial placement at the National Theatre, and she reflects on the fact that she’s never worked for free to get her foot on the ladder.
