The Community Curator program invites representatives from community groups in the Rochester region to curate film screenings using VSW’s collection of over 10,000 film and video titles. Participants in the program work the Curator of Moving Image Collections to research and select a full program of films that speak to the interests of the group, while opening a broader dialog with the Rochester community. The goals of the Community Curator program are to empower cultural organizations to create their own media programming, expand global and cultural awareness within the Rochester community, and strengthen ties between students, artists, and communities that will cultivate and advance multi-cultural relationships.
Programs take place in the VSW Microcinema and/or stream on VSW.ORG for 3-4 weeks.
Community Curators are provided with a $350 stipend.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year. For more information, see the Community Curator FAQ page using the link provided.
