Filming in Venice!

I was pretty excited to have an excuse to visit the Venice Biennale this year! We're always on the lookout to highlight jobs and opportunities that are available to interested young people and working as a steward at the British Pavilion at the Venice Biennale has got to be one of the most exciting ones out there.

We interviewed 21 year old Sorcha Stott-Strzala about the role - what's involved, why it's a good thing to do (besides the fact that you get paid to spend three months in Venice!) and how to apply. We also got to check out Jeremy Deller's work for the pavilion and the rest of the biennale too! 

A huge thanks to Sorcha and the team at the British Council for letting us make this film. It will be up on the site soon.
