Dear Zimfest community,
This year, as the Festival has transitioned to an online-only format, the value of digital media to our community has become more evident than ever. Zimfest has a large catalog of existing media, which we would love to make available to our community with proper curation. Additionally, we need to improve our processes for handing these media into the future.
To this end the Board and Zimfest Tech Committee are putting out a call for interested volunteers who can help us lead in this area.
These digitally-minded volunteers would lead Zimfest’s media presence (video, audio, image, etc.) by:
- Cataloging Zimfest’s existing collection of digital assets
- Working with the Board and Tech Committee to edit, curate, and make these assets available to the public
- Establishing processes for collecting, organizing, editing, and presenting these assets into the future
Helping here is a terrific way to put your skills and interests to use for a great cause. We also welcome volunteers who may wish to shadow a lead Media Coordinator! On top of the incredible music, this an opportunity to learn more about digital rights and music licensing, so that artists receive credit for their creations.
Zimfest Board President
