THE BRIEF:
Are you a young creative inspired by Afrofuturism? An emerging designer willing to put his/her skills to work to create lasting, impactful change for young people? Do you want to contribute to empowering youth by enhancing their access to information on migration?

IOM - International Organization for Migration for West & Central Africa - is looking for a talented interaction/service/interior designer or architect to support our teams in transforming two Migrant Information Centers into local activity hubs.

Through field work – yes, you’ll travel to The Gambia yourself – and in direct interaction with young Gambian and IOM teams, you’ll help us boost the attractivity of two local youth centers.


WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?
This collaboration is a unique chance to work from inside the United Nations and have a direct impact on informing youth on their migration decisions. By applying human-centered design to a UN migration project, you’ll be part of a pilot project for West Africa; a potential trendsetter building bridged between worlds.

All costs (including travel, visa, lodging, per diem, insurance) during the field visit are covered by the organisation. In addition, you’ll receive a €2,400 euro fee to cover expenses before and after the field visit.
