Artistic workshop support wanted!!

Join our Digitale Welten Festival 2021 team!

We are looking for accomplices for our youth media art festival Digitale Welten 2021. Under the motto “Influence” young people between the ages of 12 and 15 are invited to discover and try out analog and digital practices together with artists in programming and tinkering workshops. The participants create their own protest sound machines, experiment with generative art, question the performative power of bodies and spaces and develop an alternative world with avatars and virtual spaces. With the help of a self-programmed artificial intelligence, they get to the bottom of the difference between anger and hate.
Digitale Welten is all about trying things out and thinking about our digital society! Whether with code or with scissors and paper, with a cordless screwdriver or a clipboard and questionnaire.

→ What are your tasks?

As a workshop facilitator, you will support the artist or the team of artists in the implementation of the workshop: You help plan the workshop, assist in organizing the workshop materials and space during the workshop. You are available for joint reflection on the workshop and contribute your own ideas and skills (art, social or media pedagogical) as well as your organizational talent. You step in when things need to be organized or arranged at short notice. Above all, however, you are a contact person for the young people in the implementation of their projects and help, for example, if someone needs support with one of the tasks.
The workshops will take place over three days (October 19 – 21) or four days (October 18 – 21) from 10 am – 4 pm in a youth center in Frankfurt. In preparation, there will be an online meeting where you can meet the artist and the Digitale Welten team and discuss the workshop.

  • a strong interest in collaborative, creative and critical thinking, researching and communicating
