WHALE Arts Agency is a community arts organisation in Wester Hailes, South West Edinburgh. We are looking for people interested in working as stewards for our up and coming Wester Hailes Film and Moving Image festival this October.
Changing Perspectives: Wester Hailes Film and Moving Image Festival is an inaugural event for the community, coordinated by WHALE arts’ Creative Placemaking programme. This community-wide event will showcase archival, community and artist film and moving image work. Taking place across October half term it will include multiple screening events, film making workshops for young people and an outdoor projection trail at Westside plaza.
On the evening of Saturday 20th October we are working with Double Take Projections to project a selection of archival image and new film work as part of an immersive projection display around Westside Plaza shopping centre and the surrounding areas. We are looking for stewards for the Saturday evening of the festival to be stationed across the 3 projection sites, to work with the Double Take projection team to watch over the equipment and provide information to visitors/passers by on the festival itself. This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in gaining experience in arts events, film and projection projects and working with communities. We are looking for friendly people with good communication skills and interest in community arts and film.
