Join our international team in Bonn, the seat of the European Choral Association. Bring in your communication experience and skills and your creativity, contribute to our social media, improve our website, produce visual content, design various marketing campaigns and support our communication manager.
How it all started:
In the late 1950’s, conductors from different European countries, many of whom had been soldiers in World War II, met during a youth event at Loreley (Germany) and discussed what would be the best way to make sure that their young singers would not want to go to war with each other ever again. They’ve created a festival in which choirs would not only sing for each other, but also participate together in different workshops. Furthermore, singers would be sleeping in the same accommodation, eating together, and spending their free time together, thereby making friends for life and never going to war against each other again.
Our association grew out of this story and today we’re a network of organisations, choirs and individuals in the field of collective singing in Europe. Through our membership, we represent more than 2,5 million singers, vocal leaders/conductors, creators/composers, educators/teachers and managers in over 40 European countries and reach out to more than 37 million people across the whole of Europe. Member-based, project-based, we have it all.
What drives us, you ask? Well, we want to have everyone in Europe... or even better - everyone in the world experiences the benefits of collective singing. And to achieve that, there’s a lot of work to do! Therefore, we want to have you join our team and really experience how it is to work in the international cultural sector. You’ll be joining meetings and brainstorming sessions where you get to bring a real contribution.

Create an image of 2000 x 2000 px in which you promote one cultural event you’ve attended in the past and enjoyed (go back as far as you’d like, 2020 was a hard year for us all). You decide if it’s an advert, a web-section, an illustration, a video, your choice. Also, you can choose the programme you use. Write some short text to go with your image when publishing it online and specify for which platform you wrote it.
