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 :)
A private room
This project is quite unique and ideally I'd be able to discuss it further via Skype or email. Please don't hesitate to contact me.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
I need as much help as we can get so 5 hours a day would be great 5 days a week
