A unique opportunity to build your experience in content creation as part of our Marketing team.

Application Deadline: November 27, 2019
Dates: February 03 - August 28, 2020

Do you have an unquenchable desire to find a good story and help tell it well? We are currently seeking an emerging storytelling practitioner who will benefit from hands-on learning opportunities to progress their career in multimedia content creation.

In this diverse and creative practicum role, participants will gain experience and learn from mentor producers in video, print, and web story production, and will support the Marketing & Communications team in meeting our social media objectives. Activities and learning opportunities will range from story development, background research, and writing web copy to supporting video content capture.

What does the program offer?
Participants will develop their storytelling skills on all media platforms, as well as refine research, communication, collaboration, and interpersonal skills through their engagement with staff, faculty, and artists from all areas of Banff Centre.

In this experiential program, participants will have the opportunity to engage in discussions about key trends in web content production, print, and video production; attend workshops and cultural events; and expand their personal network through participating in community outreach initiatives and project committees specific to web content production in various media.

Who should apply?
Applicants must be versed or familiar with all forms of storytelling media production. You will have either a degree in journalism, media, or comparable experience in storytelling. Some experience in video production, working with website content management systems, and an understanding of social media is an asset.

You will also be highly organized and adaptable, with strong written and verbal communication skills and excellent attention to detail.

As this program exceeds six months in length, enrollment is limited to Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada. This is due to changes made by the Government of Canada to international student visa regulations, effective June 1, 2014.
