Video journalist needed for community indicators project


Peg logoUnited Way of Winnipeg is looking for a talented and creative individual to develop a suite of three stories for the Peg community indicators system. The stories will provide qualitative information on well-being in Winnipeg.  The intent of the project is to capture and share the personal accounts of three individuals who have lived experience or who are helping to make a difference in Winnipeg.  The project will include the production of three edited video stories (each 1 ½ – 3 minutes in length) along with written versions of each story (each 500 words or less in length).  United Way and Peg will provide direction on the subjects for the stories.

Peg is Winnipeg’s community indicator system, currently being developed by United Way of Winnipeg and the International Institute for Sustainable Development.  Peg tracks indicators that reflect and measure our city’s well-being.  The indicators, developed by a wide cross-section of stakeholders, speak to our well-being in eight theme areas (basic needs, health, education & learning, social vitality, governance, built environment, economy, and natural environment), and one-cross-cutting issue (poverty).  Peg is located on an easily accessible website that provides information through data and stories, providing users with a number of ways of interacting with the site.

If you have great interviewing and interpersonal skills, strong abilities in video-journalism, and a passion for making a difference in Winnipeg, please contact Heather Block, Director of Strategic Initiatives (204-924-4267 or to find out how you can be a part of this exciting storytelling project.
