Project title: MoveOn’s 25th Anniversary Livestream Project Manager
Project begins: Sep 13, 2023
Project length: The contract provided will be active from contract sign date until the date of the livestream, November 12, 2023. Any hours given in a scope of work are an estimate, and MoveOn does not guarantee a specific number of hours to its contractors.
MoveOn is celebrating its 25th anniversary by connecting members all over the country and rejoicing in this huge milestone. After an in-person summit, MoveOn will host a livestream to connect with MoveOn members who were not able to attend the in-person summit. This livestream will be an extension of the summit but also an original product meant to captivate, energize, and mobilize MoveOn members for the next phase of the organization, and for our specific 2024 electoral work.
This livestream will be hosted on Zoom and available to viewers via Twitch, as well as in person through house parties that are geographically spread throughout the country. We are searching for broadcast logistics contractors who will aid us in producing a visually engaging, accessible, and memorable live stream that rises to the occasion of this milestone.
