The work will provide the volunteer with the opportunity to contribute to the historical documentation of 9/11 and its ongoing legacy, to be introduced to the process of researching and evaluating media content for exhibition and/or online displays, and to work alongside a diversity of museum professionals including content developers, media producers, digital developers, curators, researchers, and designers.


ROLE DESCRIPTION
The Museum exhibitions include an array of dynamic media experiences that are regularly updated with new visitor-generated content. These experiences include a digital guestbook with visitor messages, an audiovisual program with visitor video recordings, and touchscreen kiosks with stories of those impact by 9/11 attacks and 1993 WTC bombing.
