Student Ambassador Programme
The Art Story is now offering students (of all levels) an Ambassador Programme 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 students to become ‘Art Story Ambassadors’ for a period of two months, 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 becoming an Ambassador, 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.
Please note: the main goal for this Ambassador Programme is to let students write in their own words, about what interests them, and to have them share their posts with their own social media audiences – growing and finding their unique voices.
