Cardiff & Vale Arts and Health Charity are delighted to welcome Arts & Business Cymru Intern Bex Betton to the team.
Bex, who will be starting with the team in early November for 10 months, has a strong background in fundraising, events and the Arts which have been developed from working within the Welsh Arts scene.
Cardiff and Vale University Health Board will be the first Health Board in Wales to support an Intern from Arts & Business Cymru within their Arts team.
During her time with the team, Bex will lead on a number of Arts fundraising initiatives and help develop and deliver projects where Arts help with mental health and wellbeing in healthcare environments. This is an important part of the Health Boards staff wellbeing strategy and improves patient experience.
Bex is the first woman in Wales to become a Women in Games Ambassador. This means that she promotes women to enter the games industry, culture and community and encourages it to be free of gender discrimination, where full equality of opportunity, treatment and conditions empowers women to achieve their full potential.
Bex recently won “Best Dressed” in the Arts & Business Cymru Virtual Awards 2020 with her super sparkles! The awards were attended by the Health Boards Arts team, where they were delighted to win an award for Arts & Business in Health for its partnership work with Rubicon Dance.
Talking about her Internship, Bex said: “I’m incredibly excited to start my venture with Cardiff & Vale Arts and Health Charity. Seeing the positive impact the charity makes is a true inspiration to me and I am really looking forward to playing a part in all the wonderful work they do. Over the next ten months, I hope to develop as a professional and become a real part of the team.”
Simone Joslyn, Head of Arts and Health Charity at Cardiff and Vale University Health Board said: “I’m delighted to welcome Bex to the team. Her experience working in the Arts, coupled with a desire to increase income for the Arts through fundraising and events will be invaluable to the team. I hope she enjoys her time with us to grow her knowledge and skills for the future with the support of Arts & Business Cymru.”
