Seeking a videographer who wants to tell the story of farmers, chefs, and food activists in Minnesota. You'll be in charge of creating a medium-form film piece showing the landscape of good work that folks are doing around food in Minnesota. You'll have creative freedom as well as mentoring guidance to answer some of these questions 1. Who are the leaders that are changing how we farm in Minnesota? 2. How are farmers, chefs, and food activists in relationship with the land in Minnesota? 3. What work are folks doing that gives us hope for the future of food? 4. What food histories and current stories are not being told?
This volunteer role asks that you're comfortable reaching out to people in the community to schedule/plan dates to interview and shoot on-location.
This role has immense opportunity for connecting with leaders in the local, national, and international Slow Food community.
You will be expected to understand the values of Slow Food Minnesota, how you want to be in relationship with those values, and uphold that in your interactions with the community.
It’s our mission to promote healthy farm ecosystems, awareness of the circular food economy, and our ability to support local organizations doing meaningful work in the food equity space. We’re here to provide Minnesotans with opportunities to volunteer time, connect with like-minded individuals, develop skills to be advocates for food justice, and donate. Together we can make an impact and change our food system so that it works for all people.
The Slow Food movement began in 1986, when the people of Italy protested against the first McDonald's in Rome. It can be most succinctly described as the opposite of fast food, but it encompasses so much more. The joy of growing, cooking, eating, and sharing food with the responsibility to produce it in harmony with nature and humanity.
We are a chapter in an international Slow Food movement, with organizations on every continent, all working to foster good, clean, fair food for all. We have been working to advance Slow Food in Minnesota since 1999. We hope you'll join us in making the food system work better for everyone in our community.
