Call for Workshop Facilitators
Hosted by Home Made Visible
Deadline: February 17
As part of the Regent Park Film Festival (RPFF) commitment to fostering diversity and meaningful inclusion in the Canadian media industry and arts community, this position prioritizes applications by applicants who identify as Black, Indigenous, People of Color, person with disabilities, woman, queer, trans or non-binary person or any combination of these intersections. We encourage you to self identify in your application.
Discourses on archives and historical documents are often led by brick and mortar institutions; libraries, museums and archives. Archival materials and historical documents often feel exclusive to researchers and educators. The nationwide archival project, Home Made Visible, asks how can we share the value in telling and preserving our own stories with our families and our larger communities? The Project aims to make archiving as well as storytelling accessible to the broader public.
We are looking for workshop facilitators to design and run workshops in public libraries across Canada that speak to storytelling, documentation and/or preservation.
Facilitators would provide programming services. Facilitators will be compensated for artist and materials fees. Marketing support and access to workshop space are included.
