Call For Videographer

Wiregrass Museum of Art is seeking a videographer to document its summer residency program. An artist in residence will be working within our city neighborhoods, gathering stories and feedback from residents and business owners on an upcoming transportation plan.

The videographer will be expected to record the artist’s activities, which could include pop up events in the neighborhood, community dinners and conversations, and creative place-making projects. It is also expected that the videographer selected will document individual stories of neighbors, stakeholders, and organizers throughout the process.

Applications are open to all US-based video teams and priority will be given to those with a history and interest in socially engaged work. The project budget is $5,000 with half to be paid up front, and the remainder at the close of the program. The videographer will be responsible for coordinating with the artist in charge of activities to determine a timeline for shooting.

The artist will be working from June 1-August 31, 2018. The videographer is expected to provide an edited video of the project no more than six minutes in duration by August 31, 2018. In addition, raw footage will also be given to organizers so that a video can be produced of the nationwide projects supported by Transportation for America and Smart Growth America. Interim check-ins will also be scheduled throughout the project duration.

The deadline to apply is May 20, 2018. Finalists will be notified by May 22, 2018. Interested parties should apply to Dana-Marie Lemmer, Director and Curator at Wiregrass Museum of Art. Please send CV, samples of work, and a statement of interest to dlemmer@wiregrassmuseum.org

This project is supported in part by an award from Transportation for America and Smart Growth America.

Youth Art Education Policy

Outside of tours, family days, and open house events, individuals who are not enrolled in a class are not allowed in WMA classrooms except by written permission of the Executive Director. Parents may not join children in the classroom during instruction times in order to ensure an atmosphere conductive to creativity. It is important to limit the number of adults to keep the focus on the kids, their learning, and to accommodate limited seating in the studio. Parents are welcome to stay in the museum during class but must remain outside of the classroom during instruction time.

Museum educators are experienced in creating positive learning environments for all ages and are required to go through a background check to ensure the safety of our students. Parents and guardians are encouraged to visit the studio at the end of class to see what their child has created. All docents and volunteers working with children are also required to go through background checks.

Thank you for understanding our policy and priority on the safety and well-being of participating students.

Refund Policy

The Wiregrass Museum of Art may cancel any class with insufficient enrollment; students will be notified and given a full refund. If a student withdraws at least 1 week before the class begins, he/she will be refunded for the full cost of the class. If a student withdraws 24 hours before the class begins, he/she will be refunded for half the cost of the class. There are no refunds after the start date of class, and membership fees are nonrefundable. Students are not enrolled until complete payment is received.
