The Heroes Belgium Comic & Manga Con League (FACTS and Made in Asia) is looking for an internship hero to join the team. Are you passionate about events, do you have a knack for marketing, communication, and event management, and are you enthusiastic and studious? Then make your internship go ‘super’ and apply for a place in the Heroes Belgium squad!
Doing an internship at Heroes Belgium means you are joining a very creative team, behind the scenes of magical universes, more precisely the ones of FACTS in Ghent and Made in Asia in Brussels. This Belgian cluster of the Heroes network – which is Europe’s largest network of pop culture events, with 9 thrilling events in 3 countries, including Heroes Dutch Comic Con – organises 4 events per year with over 167.000 visitors each year.
You participate in brainstorms for unique entertainment, you learn how to draw in and activate like-minded people with your enthusiasm and you get to (co-)create campaigns for the FACTS and Made in Asia communities. You will be an integral part of the many activities – both online and offline – that will turn our events into unforgettable fandom festivals. During this internship, you will be working with a team of passionate and professional geeks who will happily assist and guide you, to make your time with us a valuable learning experience.
Heroes Belgium is looking for the following internships:
In the land of online communication, audiovisual content is king. Nowadays, nothing can stop a scrolling feed like solid audiovisual content does, especially in our cinema and TV-minded communities. Enter the videographer. You transform brainstorm to broadcast in an epic way, you know your way around image, sound and editing, and you like challenging yourself in the field of visual and video content.
You gobble up relevant gaming, movies, series, and comics reports like you’re Pac-Man in a maze and you have no trouble finding and keeping up with the latest news. This also sparks you to come up with original perspectives and fresh ideas for various activities and content.
If there’s one group that adores creative writing, it’s the Heroes Belgium community. If you have the superpower to write inspired stories and texts in various formats that can grip the reader and make them feel like they ‘belong’ with the use of pop culture references, then this is the internship for you. Come and ‘Stan Lee’ their minds!
You think in emoji, speak in gifs and you breathe in hashtags, in a world with Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Discord accounts. You don’t cower from the idea of providing a solid social media strategy and creative content ideas for the Heroes Belgium communities, who are used to around-the-clock entertainment. If this is you, send in your job application!
Creating an event is not just about tables, stages, and chairs, it is first and foremost selling a story and dragging the visitor into the narrative. In other words, Heroes Belgium is always on the lookout for a natural writer who can captivate a geeky community with out-of-the-box stories and nods to pop culture.
Having the nicest texts and content for an event is a must, but that creativity must also be visualised in a finetuned marketing campaign with the right visual branding. Think you have what it takes to make our campaigns go Super Saiyan?
- Event and Project management
Taking a concept and knowing how to motivate the correct crew and attract the right necessities for the activity is a true talent. If you enjoy handling everything from start to stage performance and from plan to booth, then come and craft a universe with Heroes Belgium.
