We are seeking a designer who wants to tell the story of what is happening in the local Slow Food movement. We'd love you to be familiar with the ins and outs of email design, and comfortable with Mailchimp.
Your primary job at the outset is owning the monthly storytelling to our members of what's going on, what's coming up, and how to participate in moving the movement. Some folks might call this a monthly newsletter, but WOW that sounds boring.
Once you feel comfortable with the cadence of this role, you'll have the opportunity to become the champion of the email realm, developing ways to deeper our engagement within the movement, maybe automate some stuff, segment some stuff, work your email wizardry (we have some opportunity for growth in this department if that isn't glaringly obvious). You could also decide at some point you are sick and tired of this email thing and want to step into a strategy role, a broader design role with our organization, or become a leader at the national/international level. Those are all possibilities too.
All kidding aside, in this role you will be expected to familiarize yourself with 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.
"We are a 'bridge builder' in the social change ecosystem. Maybe our role isn't so programmatic, but looking at how we can serve as the hub or the touch point to connect all the work that's happening. Finding people doing this amazing work and bringing them together. We need to be recognized in the space as a better partner, willing and interested in being both allies and accomplices to people doing the good work." - Dan Mueller, Slow Food USA
Slow Food is a place where you can connect with the work of joy and justice in our community. Food justice means good, clean, fair food for all.
Our commitment is connecting you to the incredible work that is happening in our own backyards. And, to connect community leaders doing the work with national and international leaders and resources to help them along the way.
We are farmers, home cooks, vintners, musicians, chefs, wine lovers, moms and dads, grocers, brewers, writers, nutritionists, students, bakers, lawyers, engineers-united in our support for good, clean, fair food that is equitable, just, and inclusive.

Deliverable of one email per month, time commitment depends on how much you want to invest in the storytelling and design.
