Via United States Holocaust Memorial Museum:
“The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) seeks a freelance writer to help create a physical exhibition and online experience on the subject of the ongoing persecution of the Rohingya in Burma (Myanmar). The Rohingya exhibition and website are being guest-curated by a photojournalist who has been documenting this story for over a decade.
The writer will be part of an in-house team working closely with the curator to tell the compelling story of the methodical and systematic efforts of Burmese authorities to erase the Rohingya community. While the writer will be responsible for creating all of the text, the curator will play a leading role in determining the narrative structure, storytelling components, voice and tone, and core messages.
The expected timeframe for the writer’s involvement is 10-12 weeks, beginning in early to mid-September 2019. The exhibition is scheduled to open at USHMM in late January 2020; the online experience will be made available at the same time.
DEADLINE: August 23.
