Call for Expressions of Interest
Island Digital Voices Contributing Storytellers
Contract fee: $500
Do you have a passion for storytelling? Do you think people are fascinating and complex, and do enjoy learning more about them? Do you know (or know about) interesting people living here in Epekwitk that other people should know about, too?
Island Digital Voices (IDV) is a project that aims to capture the stories of interesting, notable, and otherwise intriguing Islanders—so they can be shared with others and preserved as part of our province’s history. We are looking for contributors to interview these Islanders and tell their stories. Each storyteller will be responsible for one profile, which will be shared at islanddigitalvoices.ca in an audio-visual format.
Contributing storytellers, in cooperation with the IDV project coordinator and IDV film coordinator, will:
- suggest potential interview subjects and help guide selection process
- research subjects and prepare interview questions
- conduct interview for audio-visual profile
We are looking for a diverse representation of Islanders to interview and share stories about a diverse representation of Islanders. We are excited to work with contributors from all backgrounds and communities.
Send a CV/resume and short letter telling us about yourself and why you’re interested in this project to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, October 6, 2023.
The Island Digital Voices project, founded in 2021, is an initiative of the Government of Prince Edward Island; it is administered by the PEI Museum & Heritage Foundation.
