ATTENTION MOUSE CORPS!
As we get confirmations on Apprenticeship opportunities, we will post applications & descriptions here. You can apply to all of them, or one or none! Applications are due by June 4th.
Rev-: 6 Apprenticeships, 10 days – Schedule TBA
Since 2000, REV- has engineered imaginative approaches to advancing cultural equity. We do so through constituency-led campaigns for social justice, youth media arts, research & development, and activities that trammel the boundaries between the printed word and public sphere. We are artists, advocates, media makers, low-wage workers, immigrants, and youth working to spark the public imagination and accelerate social change.
About the project: Participants in the summer workshop will collaboratively storyboard, script, costume, create props, shoot and edit an exciting episode in the life of the Bibliobandito in NYC alongside artists and mediamakers from REV-.
The workshop includes daily visits from various young mentors working in arts, media and technology who will share their insights with the goal of furthering participants’ own college-readiness and career trajectories. Example session topics include smart and savvy social media, crafting a cover letter and CV, effective communication (online & face-to-face), planning for the future, and working your networks.
