The role of a Media Leader consists of two parts: firstly, to devise inspirational and engaging projects with the consultation of the Leader team, focusing on developing media related skills and content for all expedition participants. Secondly, to collect and create media for British Exploring Society to use as marketing material to publicise the Society and our expeditions.
The media projects on expedition are about storytelling, teaching young people how to record and reflect on their adventure through a variety of mediums, whether that is through writing, photography, videography, or field sketches. As well as a Media Leader’s creative responsibilities, you are still a member of the leadership team and we expect you to have the strong leadership skills that we desire from all our Leaders.
British Exploring Society believe that expeditionary experiences provide outstanding opportunities for personal development. Through our scientific and adventurous and media based activities, we support our participants to develop in a range of areas. Our Media projects are opportunities for young people to develop skills and techniques that help them document and process the expedition experience, and give them a creative outlet to support their development.
