WE ARE CURRENTLY ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR VOLUNTEER POSITIONS AS CONSERVATION ARTISTS FOR THE EYES ON CONSERVATION ART SCENE!
Position Description: Wild Lens is seeking 1-2 volunteers that have a skill or appreciation in art and conservation. These positions will be assisting in the development of our recent Eyes on Conservation Art Scene (EOCAS) platform. The vision for this platform is to utilize all mediums of art and convey conservation messaging with the task of telling stories about preserving the natural world. It is through this process we wish to inspire others to appreciate our planet and care for it and all its species.
Wild Lens launched the Eyes on Conservation Art Scene and its first exhibit at the Les Boise Film Festival in 2017 with great success. Now that we experienced the positive response to this concept, we want to take it much further beyond exhibits. We are looking for creative individuals that can think outside of mainstream framework. The goal is to craft a narrative using all medi- ums such as painting, drawing, song, dance, theater, etc. and to connect the audience with an understanding of our natural world and the issues that affect it.
