Volunteer archive and cataloguing opportunity‏

seeking two archiving and cataloguing volunteers for exciting new initiative

Apples and Snakes, the leading organisation for performance poetry and spoken word is seeking two archiving and cataloguing volunteers to assist in an exciting new initiative to create a living archive of spoken word & performance poetry in the UK.

This project is supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Roles will include digitising archival materials – flyers, press-cuttings, and analogue audio- and video–recordings. Editing digital materials and uploading and cataloguing them on a web based programme. An interest in spoken word would be useful.

Each volunteer will be required to attend an induction day on the 5th February and a training day on the 12th February 2016. The placement would then run for one day a week (Wednesday, Thursday or Friday) for twelve weeks.

Volunteers will be based at the Apples and Snakes office at The Albany in Deptford. Travel costs of up to £12.50 per day will be paid by the organisation.

To apply please send contact details and a brief statement explaining why you are interested in this opportunity to russell@applesandsnakes.org by 3rd February 2016.
