In the spotlight with David Campbell

During the summer we would like to put our staff members in the spotlight to give you an insight in who we are and what we are doing behind the scenes. Since we are all working in a cultural organisation, looking to engage people with the arts, I decided to ask some creative questions too. Enjoy getting to know David Campbell, who is doing an internship in Droichead for 3 months, a little bit better.

What is your role within Droichead Arts Centre?
I’m here on internship from DKIT and I am currently involved with the marketing and promotion of all the excellent events that the Droichead Arts Centre are hosting and the general making and fetching of coffee and buns to keep people working.

What’s your favourite part of your job?
Working under pressure and to dead lines and also getting to be creative.

What is the greatest challenge in your job?
Working with children and animals.

What is the most fun thing you have ever done, working with Droichead Arts Centre?
Well it’s early days yet and I think the up coming out door theatre will be an event to remember.

What was the best event in Droichead Arts Centre you have ever attended?
Wallis Bird, Ardel O’Hanlon and ‘The Ones Who Kill Shooting Stars’.

What is the highlight for you in Droichead Arts Centre this year?
Well it will definitely be the outdoor theatre.

Why is art and culture important to you?
It’s what separates us from the Animals.

What was the best concert you ever attended?
Too many to list: U2, Madness. Crystal Swing are in the same league as U2 and Madness.

What was the last CD you bought?
Again too many to list but of a junkie when it comes to music. Laura Marling (I speak because I can) and The New Breed Compilation and also the DJ Shadow remix of Crystal Swing’s ‘He drinks Tequila’.

If you could hire any actor to portray you in a movie, who would you chose?
John Cusack or Alec Baldwin covering all bases in case I put on a few pounds.

Can you describe Droichead Arts Centre in 3 words?
Intimate, unique, entertaining.
