Call for Workshop Facilitators: Home Made Visible, Community Archiving Project (Canada-wide)
“Home Made Visible is a nationwide archival project by The Regent Park Film Festival made in partnership with Charles Street Video and York University Libraries. For more information visit HomeMadeVisible.ca
Discourses on archives and historical documents are often led by brick and mortar institutions; libraries, museums and archives. Archival materials and historical documents often feel exclusive to researchers and educators.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 (see appendix) for artist and materials fees. Marketing support and access to workshop space are included.
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.
We are also prioritizing applicants local to the region of each workshop.”
