Chicago Scroll Project Internship

Description: Partners for Sacred Places is sponsoring the creation of a new study, the Chicago Scroll Project. Students acting as interns will participate in creating visual documentaries on Chicagos historic religious worship spaces. Documentaries will be made publicly available through social media such as YouTube. Students will be responsible for acquiring historic and archival research and data, preparing and conducting interviews, as well as creating a short documentary on each congregation. Teams of students will be grouped together, composed of researchers, interviewers, camera-operators and video-editors. This part-time internship will start in January 2010.

For students who have an interest in Architecture & Preservation, the Arts/Humanities, Communications, Journalism, and Film, this will allow you to explore your respective fields while working alongside others with backgrounds of various disciplines. This is a rare opportunity for students to incorporate creativity, build their portfolio, and document the rich heritage of Chicagos historic congregations.

Requirements: Students must currently be enrolled as full-time student in an accredited college or university and have full, unrestricted access to digital filming equipment (consumer/personal camcorders may be acceptable) and video editing software.

Stipend: This is an unpaid internship, eligible for academic credit.

Application Instructions: Please send a cover letter and resume explaining why you are the ideal intern, by December 23rd, 2009 5pm, to Chicago@sacredplaces.org.
