During the annual MOMO Festival, Motel Mozaïque (MOMO) takes over the city of Rotterdam with live music, art, performance and guided tours. We are a non-profit organisation with the mission to connect people, creative talent and the city of Rotterdam through art, music and performance.

MOMO festival is here for the art deep-divers and the music lover who likes to get surprised by a genre bending multidisciplinary line-up. Artists like KOKOROKO, Big Thief, Balimaya Project, Black Country, New Road, Yussef Dayes and Amenti Theatre Company have previously been part of the line-up among many other national and international acts. We work with a small, creative and open-minded team, which expands near the festival dates. MOMO Festival takes place 18-20 April 2024.

About the project
Team marketing is a small team with plenty going on: from coming up with social media concepts to interviewing the artists, and all communication in between. As content creator, you work closely with the head of marketing on the content communicated on all our channels: from the website and newsletter to our social media output. You will come up with concepts for new content and create and edit videos. You will work out graphic design content for MOMO Festival and write (short) texts – such as captions for posts or texts for our website. You will have space to come up with your own concepts and ideas for content. Further, you will contribute to effective communication about the festival in text and image, working in collaboration with the other MOMO team members.

An overview of what you will be doing, among other things:

  • Supporting the head of marketing in managing communication (channels)
  • Devise and produce social media content, including: filming and editing artist interviews and other social content.
  • Working out visuals in Adobe Suite using our design guidelines and templates
  • Writing texts for our website, captions for posts and newsletters, etc.
  • During MOMO Festival: creating visual content, such as behind-the-scenes videos, collaborating with the video team and working with the team on communication concerning the festival (on a practical and creative level).
