Summer Position: Archivist
Hosted by Eastern Front Theatre
We're looking for someone to help us digitize and organize our archives!
The Archivist will organize and digitize audio and video archival materials, as well as search out missing/additional items from our 29 year history. This will include outreach to interested community members to collect memories of Eastern Front Theatre. Other duties include scanning and digitally organizing past reviews, posters/programs, and production stills, as well as creating a full list of past productions and associated artists.
Over the last 29 years, Eastern Front has championed countless Atlantic Canadian artists and stories through commissions, workshops, our annual theatre festival, and our playwrights unit, and we’d like to be able to quickly access that rich history. This is an 8 week, full-time (flexible) contract with NS Summer Skills.
Please note: This job requires many hours of repetitive tasks, some heavy lifting, working with dusty materials and mostly sitting with some standing. Some elements of this job can be done remotely, but the majority will need to happen at the EFT office, located at Alderney Landing in Downtown Dartmouth.
