Radical Connections is seeking a creative tech-savvy student to help improve and maintain our Squarespace website, to facilitate online and in-person concerts for people who are isolated by their healthcare needs. They will also assist with improving accessibility to the WordPress and Calendly booking portals of our partner organizations. In addition, they will assist with social media and other promotional tasks. We will require a letter from your post-secondary institution indicating this work is related to your studies.
Radical Connections transforms healthcare together with artists, to improve the quality of life for people in healthcare. This year our partnerships with the Dementia Society and Connected Canadians will bring seniors aging-at-home the opportunity to choose an artist for virtual personalized one-on-one performances. We offer Healing Interactive Performances to anyone who is isolated due to their health. They or their loved ones can purchase a performance and book a connection directly from the Radical Connections’ website. We need the help of a creative community-minded student to help make this happen.
