Gaia Nicoloso, Intern EUNIC Netherlands

Gaia Nicoloso, Intern EUNIC Netherlands

I am an intern for EUNIC Netherlands, and as the project and event planner for the Dutch cluster of this European organisation, I have the opportunity to work with embassies and cultural institutions from numerous European countries. Together we plan pan-European events focused on art, cinema, music and much more, such as the European Literature Night and the European Day of Languages. One of the best aspects of this experience, for me, is the daily interaction with professionals of diverse disciplines and cultural backgrounds from prestigious national institutions.

I graduated in public relations at the University of Udine (Italy). During the third year of my Bachelor programme, I spent nine months in Spain for my first Erasmus exchange, attending the University of Almería. After that, I flew to Brisbane, Australia to work as an au pair for seven months, and this experience strongly boosted my interest in the Asia-Pacific region and, especially, in the relations between Australia and the EU. In September 2020 I completed an EMJMD in Euroculture at the universities of Groningen, Uppsala (Sweden), and Ōsaka (Japan). Now I am looking forward to delving further into European cultural exchanges, through the many events that EUNIC Netherlands is organising in 2021.
