Fundacja Edukacji Wizualnej (Foundation of Visual Education) organizes educational and cultural actions. The most important event is FOTOFESTIWAL – International Festival of Photography in June (www.fotofestiwal.com).

The Foundation cooperates closely with three other organizations which are based in the same building – Lodz Art Center, Chorea Theatre Association and Fabryka Sztuki. Those organizations work on various cultural projects together making their headquarters a lively artistic place full of interesting people – amateurs and professionals, local and international, performers and public. An inspiring spirit and strong involvement in carried actions are always present here.
We look for one volunteer with specified competences: a multimedia profiled person who can take photographs and make videos, prepare the visual documentation of cultural events. The volunteer should have a good command of programmes needed to manage his/her tasks. Those skills are required in terms of activities which we want to dedicate to the volunteers.
We would like to host a volunteer who has organizational skills, has a good command of English, who is motivated, pro-active, independent in his/her actions and open-minded. Creativity and good sense of humour will be a big plus.
