Open Call

For Expressions of Interest to work and collaborate with one of the five following Charity / Social Enterprise Partners:

What

We are looking for students/ recent graduates to work with one of these organisations, and to be part of a team to create a number of 60 second film / time-based-pieces about Manchester Homelessness. These will be film / animation/ sound / text / graphic time-based pieces that will engage informatively with some of the narratives and complexities involved around the homelessness issue

It is envisaged that the work produced will be used for promotional/ campaigning purposes and professionally and strategically disseminated across social media platforms. The ‘films’ produced will form part of a screening symposium and commendation event at HOME on 06th June 2019.

Please contact g.parry@mmu.ac.uk if you need any more information.

Who

This opportunity is open to all students / recent graduates from across the faculty of arts and humanities.  If you have an interest in social issues in general and /or homelessness in particular. If you are interested in volunteering and gaining experiences and  knowledge about organisations involved in making a  positive difference. If you wish to test out and develop further your interpersonal, collaborative soft skills,  then this is an opportunity for you.

Each of the 5 charities taking part will work with a mixed group of 5 students / recent graduates, who will then work as volunteers, finding out about the  charity and getting to know the people they help.  Working either in mixed groups and /or individually, they will then produce one minute  film / time-based-pieces. These will be made in partnership with the charity, and supported by consultancy, masterclass and drop in sessions.

The work produced will recognize your contribution – It will be your work. The skills you bring and develop here,  your willingness to collaborate, to research, to listen and engage with people and issues, and to sensitively and creatively communicate using this short form format is the opportunity and challenge.
