REWIND R&D - Short film and Q&A

Ephemeral Ensemble invite you to join them on zoom where they will share a short film through a Vimeo link and go back to zoom for a casual Q&A. The Q&A will be done in English, with a Spanish translator.

The film was created during two weeks of research and development inspired by testimonies from Latin American refugees, whose lives were affected by dictatorship in Latin America in the 70's and young adults migrants, whose lives have been affected by the current situation in Latin America.

Community Engagement Lead
East End Women's Museum

Are you passionate about connecting with diverse communities in creative and meaningful ways? Do you see the power and potential of working with women’s stories and voices? Are you up for the exciting challenge of a new role which will take our community engagement to the next level?

The East End Women’s Museum, are a small charity that researches, shares and celebrates stories of East London women, past and present. In the next 15 months they will open a new building in Barking town centre. It will be a base for new exhibitions, learning and engagement programmes for schools, community, family and adult audiences.

In the lead up to opening the new site, they are planning a year-long community engagement and co-creation programme which puts local voices at the heart of our decision-making process. They want to create a sense of local ownership of the museum, and ensure the building designs and new community programmes are welcoming, relevant and appealing to local audiences.

We’re looking for someone with relevant experience, excellent relationship-building skills and an audience-focused approach to create inclusive and impactful programmes that help put local women’s stories in the spotlight. More information and how to apply can be found here.
