Invitation to participate in an exciting cultural project during the 2017 Maltese Presidency of the Council of the European Union: Become a Citizen Journalist and live and work in Brussels for a few months between January and June 2017.

 

The 2017 Maltese Presidency of the Council of the EU is inviting Maltese residents to be part of an international arts project, set up by Austrian collective Time’s Up, where they will be able to engage in direct citizen to citizen communication with other Europeans.

We are looking for people who are prepared to converse with others, look at today’s realities from different perspectives and develop possible futures for Europe and the European Union.

We are looking for people who will enjoy communicating with different people in Brussels.

The interviews will be documented and made public, as part of an ongoing development of possible European Futures with a uniquely Maltese perspective.

Each Citizen Journalist (CJ) will live and work in Brussels with 2-3 others for a period of minimum of four weeks – longer if possible (max. 5 months) – between 16th  January and 7th June 2017.

The CJs will appear at various events and venues, engaging in direct dialogue with European citizens.

CJs will take part and support various Presidency activities, primarily the Presents of the Future workshops with Time’s Up and their associated partners.

CJs will be given preliminary training as well as briefings on the specific developments upon which to build their conversations with – and recordings of European citizens.

CJs must be of legal age and will receive a monthly fee plus a living and travel allowance. They must be fluent in English.
