Media Archive Internship
Witness
Brooklyn

WITNESS uses video to open the eyes of the world to human rights violations.
WITNESS empowers people to transform personal stories of abuse into powerful
tools for justice, promoting public engagement and policy change. Founded 20
years ago by musician and activist Peter Gabriel, WITNESS partners with NGOs,
community groups, and grassroots organizations around the globe.

  
Internships at WITNESS offer a unique, hands-on opportunity to enhance their
educational objectives through practical, real-world experience under the
guidance and mentoring of experienced professionals in the areas of human
rights, video advocacy, communications, media operations, fundraising, IT,
human resources, and nonprofit administration. Interns participate in an array
of activities depending on the department and projects, which may include
logging footage, translation, research, event planning, online outreach, and
organizational support.

  
Description

  
The WITNESS Media Archive is a repository of over 5000 hours of video, both
tape- and file-based, recorded and produced by human rights activists around
the world over the past 20 years. The Media Archive is also a leader in the
development of training resources aimed at non-professional archivists and
activists who are managing their own human rights video collections.

Interns train under the supervision of an Archivist, performing a variety of
hands-on tasks including cataloging, tape capture, digital ingest, research /
reference, access provision, documentation of archival processes, training
resource development support, and other administrative tasks for the archive.

  * Handle and identify various video formats in the collection.
  * Use software tools to capture, analyze, view, transfer video files.
  * Understand the processes and components of a digital archiving workflow within a small organization.
  * Liaise with content creators and program staff to acquire content for the archive.
  
Qualifications

  * We are seeking interns enrolled in a graduate program related to moving image archiving and preservation, archival studies, or library/information science. We also review applications from recent graduates who may be seeking the same type of mentorship and educational focus related to their career choice or educational background.

GENERAL INFORMATION

  
We require a minimum commitment of 2 months, for at least 16 hours a week.

credit at their educational institution. All internships are based in our
Brooklyn office, convenient to the Atlantic Terminal / Barclays Center
(2,3,4,5,B,D,Q,N, & R trains), LIRR, and the C (Lafayette) and G (Fulton)
