Secret City Arts is seeking a creative individual with an interest in using social media creatively to share content from our new project Well Being Brew!
Your task will be to capture moments and snippets from a series of participatory workshops creating micro films/reels (each around 1 minute long) to communicate and share via Instagram and other social media platforms. These micro films will widen the reach of the project, communicating its processes and outcomes.
You’ll need to attend six half-day workshops with adult participants, where we will be sharing storytelling activities, brewing teas from different herbal materials, doing creative journalling and other activities for wellbeing, indoors and outdoors.
Workshops will be held mostly afternoons 2-4pm April-July in and around Balsall Heath, Birmingham B12.
Specific dates will be
Mon 24th April 2-4pm
and Mon 10th July 2-4pm
plus four other dates tbc from this list:
Tues 25th April
Tues 9th May
Mon 15th May
Mon 22nd May
Tues 23rd May
Mon 12 June
Mon 19th June
Mon 26th June
Mon 3rd July
You will use a phone, talblet or camera to document activities, offering a close focus, and capturing an informal sense of immediacy in the moment.
You will need to work sensitively with participants who may not wish to be identified in the films (ie showing hands, materials etc, rather than faces etc).
There may be opportunities to encourage participants to use their phones to create their own micro-films too, sharing skills and building confidence.
Your work will be shared via Instagram and other social media, and will be credited within the project’s details, and your micro-films will contribute to the overall project outcome.
This is a supporting artist role so the fee for attending 6x 2hour workshops and creating a series of micro-films/reels is £300.
Please email your brief CV or statement about why you would be suitable for the role and a sample of short digital films or social media postings you have created, to give us a sense of your work.
Deadline for applications is 12pm Wednesday 5th April.
Interviews will be held on Monday 17th April via Zoom.
