Project Description

Preston Public Interest Career Fund Recipient

“The most fulfilling part of the internship was the work I did as an artist mentor, supporting artists (one-on-one and in groups) and helping them work towards their artistic, social, and developmental goals. Working so closely and personally with such a diverse group of individuals taught me an immense amount about providing support to adults with disabilities.”

My summer at Spindleworks was amazing, and thoroughly exceeded my expectations for a summer internship. While I had already been volunteering with the organization for a semester, it was a completely different experience working there full time- a much more immersive and rewarding one. The most fulfilling part of the internship was the work I did as an artist mentor, supporting artists (one-on-one and in groups) and helping them work towards their artistic, social, and developmental goals. Working so closely and personally with such a diverse group of individuals taught me an immense amount about providing support to adults with disabilities. I attended various meetings with the artists and Spindleworks director Liz McGhee, and gained great insight into the process of (and the many hurdles involved in) providing support to such individuals in the State of Maine.
