Role Title: Research Intern - Sign Project 1
Organisation: Shire of Gingin
Internship Period: Summer (November - December)
Location: Work from Home/Gingin
Beach Emergency Number (BEN) Signs are in place up and down the coastline of the Shire of Gingin. The Shire would like to utilise the BEN poles to deliver more information about the immediate area (local history, tourism tips, etc) using a QR Code for community to access this information. The intern can choose what local information they would like to research and in what medium (video, maps and infographics, photography, etc.). This information will be presented via the QR Code. Consideration must also include resourcing constraints and the information to be sustainable on a long term basis (e.g. information does not have to be updated every couple of years) and accessibility of information (e.g. audio and caption on any videos).
