Bram Stoker Festival, funded by Creative Ireland and Dublin City Council, introduced a new internship designed to develop skills in audience and youth communications via online and social media marketing. The internship was specifically targeted at marginalised and socio-economically deprived young people, who otherwise might not be able to commit to an internship without a stipend.
The primary purpose of this internship was to nurture and develop the skills of the successful candidate by giving real-world experience of online marketing, digital content creation and social media marketing at one of Dublin’s biggest and most anticipated festivals.
This intern became part of the festival’s marketing team and was guided by industry experts on creating engaging digital content as part of the broader festival campaign.
Included within the internship was a series of 8 workshops tailored to the successful candidate, which gave insights into and pratical advice on topics relevant to content creation - from how to brainstorm, to the do's and don'ts of social media, these workshops were faciliated by an expert in the field of social media content creation and strategy development, Aine Leech.
