    UPDATE! Hi everyone, I'm looking for someone to help me with an exciting project this summer.

    I am an artist from the UK working primarily with video, text and installation. My work explores the construction of identity through processes of individual and collective memory.

    I am looking for an enthusiastic individual who is fluent in Czech and English to assist me with a historical (oral-history) project in the beautiful, rural, Frydlant region of northern Czech republic. The role will include translating between Czech and English for a series of interviews, assisting with research and visiting local heritage institutions.

    The area is very beautiful and I believe this will be an exceptionally rich opportunity for the right person.

    I'm looking for someone who:

    Is enthusiastic, reliable and pays great attention to detail

    Has an interest in research based projects (and likes a bit of detective work...)

    Enjoys meeting and speaking with new people

    (ideally) Has experience in translation between Czech and English

    Is enthusiastic and interested in social and historical issues

    I can offer accommodation, meals and transport.

    Please contact me if you would like more information, Sophie :)
