Student Ambassador Programme
The Art Story is offering an exclusive opportunity for University of Nottingham students in the department of Cultural, Media, and Visual Studies to develop their written and marketing expertise and learn more about their favourite artists and art movements, while gaining CV points and acquiring new, real-world skills. In addition, they will benefit from an exclusive workshop brought to them live via Zoom, led by an experienced tutor and art writer, along with a representative from the US-based team.
We are looking for six students to become ‘Art Story Ambassadors’ for a period of two months over the summer vacation (July-August), with a commitment of at least one social media or blog post a week to promote existing or new content. Towards the end of the programme, ambassadors will be invited to join the workshop covering basic content-producing, marketing, and review-writing skills, along with a summary and discussion of the success of the programme. There is then the potential opportunity for ambassadors to be taken on as regular contributors to The Art Story.
We are looking to expand both our content-writing and outreach offerings. Thus we welcome applications from students who are interested in one field, the other, or a combination of both. Each application will be evaluated on its own, within its category, and within the context of other applications from your university department, by The Art Story Ambassador Leadership Team.
To have the chance of being one of the six selected ambassadors, students should take some time to familiarise themselves with The Art Story website, blog, and Facebook/Instagram posts, and then submit an application via email.
a. Student interested in marketing art history
Sample Instagram story:
b. Student interested in writing art history content (with a light focus on marketing)
Submit a written sample that is in the spirit of either The Art Story artist pages (summary or short biography) or blog section entries. This should be no longer than 800 words. With it, please also submit a social media post for your preferred channel, which could be used to advertise this piece of writing.
To Submit Application:
Please submit your name, specialism, year of graduation, and social media handles, along with your entry, to firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, please submit a short paragraph (50-100 words) on your personal goals and how you feel The Art Story might help you achieve these in the future.
Deadline for submissions: 5 June 2020
