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!
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.
