About our organisation: Delegations for Dialogue
We are a non-profit organisation specialising in establishing innovative travel and education opportunities for students passionate about global affairs. We do this primarily through organising academic programmes within the world's most contentious and complex regions (North Korea, Iran, Myanmar, China, India, the Balkans…), with the ultimate aim of understanding the reality behind the headlines.
We also organize on campus events, such as conference talks on global affairs or « Dialogue Now » informal conversations with inspiring personalities (artists, activists, professors, entrepreneurs, journalists…) from these world’s most contentious regions.
About our project : DIALOGUE NOW International Documentary Festival
On April 2016, we will organize our first one-day international documentary festival. Termed DIALOGUE NOW, this festival will screen the best recent documentaries on informal politics and diplomacy in the world’s most contentious regions. To boost our cause in promoting dialogue between the world’s future leaders, we aim at creating a memorable cultural event that gather both French and international student communities in Paris.
You will - undoubtedly - bring strong value to the DFD Paris team in :
- Event Management. Besides the one-day main event, our team will organize few side-animations (conference, drinks, exhibition…). As an event architect, you will take care of logistics, guests and partners.
- Partnerships. To make a sizable and sustainable impact, our project needs a strong ecosystem with relevant and like-minded allies that share our cause. You will nurture a virtuous cycle by initiating and/or following-up our partnerships (venue, media, organizations for event co-branding/design…).
- Crowdfunding. Political neutrality and independence are our main strength to lead our international dialogue cause. Therefore, we do not accept governmental subsidies, neither sponsorships. Therefore, a crowdfunding campaign will be fundamental to raise awareness and money. You will use your creativity and rigor to help the team leading a successful campaign that will meet our funding objectives.
- Communication You will take part in the public relations with our community, both online (website, social media, crowdfunding platform) and in real life (print, flyers, events). This will imply planning an ambitious and realistic communication strategy and creating incisive editorial content (articles, leaflets, social media content, teasing, reports…).
