intern/volunteer Video Making

PAX means peace. PAX brings together people who have the courage to stand for peace. Together with people in conflict areas and concerned civilians worldwide, PAX works to build dignified, and peaceful societies across the globe.

Activist TV is part of the Activist Hive* and is a way to show the work of brave, creative and -just- amazing activists in the world, using short videos, podcasts, animations or any other media you can think of.

With Activist TV we aim to enhance the voices of activists we work with in (mainly) the Middle East and Eastern Europe. We want to further spread their messages and expand our platform for social change.

We are looking for enthusiastic and creative

intern/volunteer Video Making

or future/potential video makers who are interested to expand their skills in video making and want to use these capacities and enthusiasm for social change!

The function
You will work in a small team of approx. four people. We work with activists from different countries, for example from Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Palestine or Kosovo and aim to distribute their stories of social change. This practically means you’ll be in close contact with activists, doing skype interviews, checking the internet for newsworthy stuff and linking that to activists we work with. This sometimes means covering activities organized by the Activist Hive or PAX (like a demonstration in The Hague, or set up interviews with partners visiting PAX). You’ll be in charge of translating the information into (short) videos (or other media), which can be shared, on social media to show it from an activist perspective. The videos and other output are used to mobilize people for social change.

We ask

  • Availability of at least 3 days a week (we are flexible on exact days)
  • Initiative! The Activist Hive is open to your ideas, which you’ll get the chance to develop. We offer you the space to do that and expect you to use that space! :)
  • (Some) Experience in video making (we prefer experience in Final Cut Pro X)

We offer

  • A nice place to work; extremely nice colleagues :)
  • A Dutch/English speaking environment;
  • You get to meet amazing activists from different places
  • The possibility to organize your own small events, come up with own ideas
  • The opportunity to help build a video-making curriculum for activists both in- and outside the Netherlands
  • A small remuneration of max. €150 for a fulltime (5 days per week) internship
