Wanted: Social Media Volunteer for Liverpool International Gothic Festival

There is an opportunity for a research student, ideally with a specialism in the Gothic, to engage in and gain experience in the use of social media to promote this cultural programme.

Liverpool International Gothic Festival (LIGF) takes places at various locations across the City in November, and needs a volunteer(s) with a good understanding of how to use social media competently and a desire to get the Gothic conversation going.

We are looking for someone with a keen eye for visuals, an investigative flair, someone who is excited about the current conversation on the Gothic and who wants to get those audiences who think the Gothic is not for them, taking an interest in what it’s all about.

We need the person/people to be active in including the relevant bodies into conversations and posts and engaging with the small ‘Goth’ community here in Liverpool. He/she/they will also have an awareness of blogs, articles and events taking place on the Gothic genre and spreading the dark news (as it were).

Importantly we would like to bring the Liverpool centric flavour to those messages being sent out.

The Liverpool International Gothic Festival puts Liverpool’s Gothic heritage in the spotlight for the month of November and comprises a calendar of cultural events exploring all aspects of the Gothic tradition. Tracing its roots from the beginning right up to its myriad of modern interpretations, the festival celebrates the expression of the Gothic through art, film, music, literature and performance.
