Volunteer opportunity posted by: Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space
Posted on: February 12, 2013
The Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space (MoRUS), a New York City living history museum dedicated to preserving and exhibiting the history of the East Village's community gardens, homesteads, squats and other sites of grassroots activism and social change, is offering a volunteer position in Audio-Visual Coordination. Our nascent space requires a keen mind able to set up and maintain point of sales systems, speaker and audio equipment, projectors, televisions, internet services, and video loops of selected footage. Tasks may in addition require knowledge of web design and upkeep. This opportunity would provide an interested student with a working and learning experience within the dynamic, vibrant and growing urban environment that is downtown Manhattan. If you want a chance to take ownership of an entire museum's audio-visual system and make it your own, this is the chance.
Knowledge of wiring and integrating various AV components
Ability to explain functionality of AV system components to non-techie volunteers
An interest in being a part of a tight-knit team of volunteers
An interest in the history and community of the Lower East Side and NYC activism
Web Design and programming knowledge a plus
The volunteer would be expected to work 10-20 hours per week within a flexible schedule suited to the selected candidate's needs (and may work up to 40 hours per week if preferred). The position is unpaid. The assignment would last for an initial period of three months and can be extended.
Please send a resume and cover letter to email@example.com. Reference "Audio-Visual Coordinator volunteer" in the title of the email.
