Volunteer Call Out: Join Our Film-Making Experiment!

Entelechy invites film enthusiasts, both seasoned and curious newcomers, to embark on a creative journey with us. We’re launching a 7-week experimental film-making pilot aimed at older adults (ages 65+) who want to explore the art of film in a relaxed, low-pressure setting.

Your Role:

We’re seeking patient, passionate individuals who want to support older adults on their creative discovery journey. Your role involves:

· Assisting older participants in practical film-making skills, problem-solving, and providing a friendly, approachable presence throughout workshops.

· Supporting members who may need assistance due to mobility issues, ensuring everyone feels comfortable and included (appropriate training will be provided).

· Helping set up and create a welcoming atmosphere, ensuring the space is comfortable and conducive to creativity.

· Meeting and greeting members upon arrival, offering assistance, refreshments, and ensuring a smooth start to each session.

Training will be provided to assist in any required duties.

What we are looking for:

· Supportive attitude and a passion for guiding others in a creative environment.

· Experience in filmmaking (preferred but not mandatory).

· Adaptable and Flexible: sometimes the activities might need to change, and our volunteers need to be open to some different ways of approaching things in the sessions.

· A DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check is required. Don’t have one? No worries! We can assist in obtaining it through the company.

Why Volunteer with Us?

· Gain hands-on facilitating experience in filmmaking.

· Engage and collaborate with a vibrant older adult community and foster connections across different generations.

· Contribute to personal artistic development by embracing diverse perspectives.

· Feedback and growth opportunities.
