Place: Salzburg, Austria.
It is an independent, non-commercial, non-profit TV station in Salzburg, Austria. We run a 24h Television programme, featuring the civil society of Salzburg. 30 organisations and 80 individuals are member of the organisation, together with independent producers a «user generated TV» is produced and broadcasted. We run an intense traing and workshop program called «Academy» to qualify producers from all social, economic and cultural backrounds. The organization has high ethic goals, we support minorities, migrants, impaired people, youth, cultural and subcultural movements and are partnering with similar organisations in the field of media literacy, media training and education.
This project offers the possibility to experience the work in the medium of TV broadcasting. The volunteer will get the chance to get to know all departments in a community TV station (from organisation/administration to TV workshops and own TV programms).
One of our aims – among others – is the transfer of know-how and competence in media. Especially young people should learn to express their opinions freely. In addition they should also gain technical experience. With the project ‘European Voluntary Service’ this aim is also linked to one of our further principles: the exchange of information and experience across the borders. The Project ‘European Voluntary Service’ is in line with our philosophy, to be a platform that connects cultures and also generations.
The volunteer can learn a lot about TV journalism, moderation and TV techniques. She/he will be a part of the team, especially of the editorial staff. After the time working here she/he will be able to make an TV program and got an insight in and an overview over the work of an (non commercial) TV station (and also of an institution, that carries out many projects).
In the first weeks the volunteer will get to know the whole studio and learn about all the technical facilities. The volunteer will get a complete introduction to all the technical and computerised appliances and she/he will have the possibility to learn about this step by step.
Then the volunteer should be ready for the following tasks:
The volunteer should support the staff in tasks such as: run errands, take care of the office supply, take care of the technical devices that can be rented, working with the programme makers.
It would be wished after the first time of introduction for that the volunteer also gets creative and makes his/her own TV contributions (whatever the topic will be – and even in her/his own language or in two languages.) The first contribution to the program will be cultural event tips for the «Culture Magazine», which is good for training technical abilities, moderation, journalistic methods and so on. After that she/he will be sent to press conferences and cultural events to produce short reports.
As soon as the volunteer is fully acquainted with the studio and the surrounding and s/he feels comfortable and able to do so s/he would be offered to develop an own project: e.g. initiate and produce an own programme together with other youth, emphasise on a cultural exchange between FS1 and other Community TV stations within Austria or with other countries (probably the country s/he comes from) and exchange ideas and broadcasts with them.
If the volunteer wants to she/he can make his/her own contribution to the website or run his / her own blog.
The volunteer should have technical interest and interest in media. She/he should be motivated for creating own inputs for the television, work independently and be creative. Some experience (study, job…) in media or cultural institutions would be fine, but is not necessary, because we will qualify the volunteer in our «Academy».
