Social media has become one of the most influential sources of information for the young people of today and this ESC projects aims to use this tool to motivate young people to become more involved in their local and regional communities , particularly raising the visibility of NGOs that do valuable work in the cultural sector.
The “Deutsches Tanzfilminstitut” in Bremen was founded in 1988 as a Nonprofit Organisation. It provides an impressive archive of materials that document the work of choreographers, dance companies, theatres, journalists and TV institutions, and furthermore supports the production, restauration and digitization of dance videos and films. The archive hosts around 30.000 video tapes, which can be accessed by everyone interested in anything related to dance. Furthermore, the institute plays an important educational role, organising a variety of events, workshops, presentations and projects on a local and international level, spreading information about and love for dance.
To show all the incredible things that the institute is working on to a bigger audience and increase the visibility of events, projects and information about dance, the institute is now looking for one motivated ESC volunteer!

The institute is currently already hosting one ESC volunteer and one intern, who are mainly in charge of helping with the filming and cutting of dance video material. Together, you can also collaborate or divide tasks.
NaturKultur e.V will be the coordinating organisation in charge of all logistical matters and supporting you in your learning process throughout your ESC.
You will be accommodated in a house in Bremen with three other ESC volunteers.
Bremen is a city in North-West Germany (around 500.000 inhabitants), not far from Hamburg and the North Sea coast. Bremen is a vibrant, multi-cultural city with a lot of young people and both a historical centre and newer areas of towns.
