To highlight volunteerism in Sligo during it’s year as The European Volunteer Capital for 2017, Rebecca Kennedy talks to Daniel Bannon, a volunteer at The Model.
“I choose to volunteer in The Model because I had finished a degree in Music technology in Tralee, Kerry and I was looking to help out in an arts center where I could make use of the theatre. What I enjoy about volunteering at The Model is that the team here is made up of really good people.“
Mr. Bannon tells us about the fast-paced work environment at The Model.
“You learn something new everyday so I get a lot out of it. I meet new people and it’s an opportunity to network.”
“My favorite memory of working in The Model was doing the sound engineering for ‘Beneath the Air’, last October. That was the first gig I worked on at The Model and after it finished I had a great buzz. It was really exciting. I knew a lot of theory about sound engineering from my degree but having the opportunity to practically apply that meant that I gained some really great experience.“
“I will continue to volunteer in The Model and I would recommend volunteering here to anyone remotely interested in the Arts. Spending your time at The Model presents the opportunity to learn new skills, get practical experience and meet like-minded people.“
