We’re so excited to introduce you to the Weisman’s first-ever Digital Content Team, who will work closely with WAM’s education, communications, and programs staff to create fresh stories for the Weisman’s social media channels. This spring’s team of University of Minnesota student storytellers are an impressive lot: their combined skillsets and experience include amazing moving image storytelling capacity, strategic communication and social media savvy, illustration, serious writing chops, and art scene experience.
WAM is increasingly invested in digital storytelling to connect our communities, on campus and beyond, with new ways to find insight and inspiration from the art, ideas, and stories generated and cared for here. As a teaching museum on a world-class university campus, it’s only natural that student storytellers should lead the way! With WAM’s newly-created Digital Content Team, we have a valuable opportunity to offer creative, educational, and professional opportunities for students interested in gaining experience in multimedia storytelling.
Look for their weekly stories on TikTok and Instagram this spring and summer! Interested in becoming a member of the Digital Content Team next year? We’ll be taking applications for the 2021-22 academic year in August.

BRINK is a junior pursuing communication studies. Outside of the classroom, he is pursuing his passion for film and is working towards a career in filmmaking. His passion for art has pushed him to step out of his element to capture and spread awareness for pieces that deserve recognition.

Special thanks to WAM’s donors, whose contributions to the museum’s digital initiatives make this opportunity possible! Show your support for projects like this >>
