ILRI Consultancy- Graphics Recorder and Whiteboard Animator (closing date: 17 February 2020)
International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) seeks to recruit a graphic recorder (cartoonist) and whiteboard animator to document several 2-day workshops focusing on visioning and development pathways for sustainable livestock systems under the Program for Climate Smart Livestock Systems. These workshops will be taking place through 2020 in Kenya, Uganda and Ethiopia.
The International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) works to improve food and nutritional security and reduce poverty in developing countries through research for efficient, safe and sustainable use of livestock. It is the only one of 15 CGIAR Research Centres dedicated entirely to animal agriculture research for the developing world. Co-hosted by Kenya and Ethiopia, it has regional or country offices and projects in East, South and Southeast Asia as well as Central, East, Southern and West Africa. www.ilri.org
Scope of Work
The graphic recorder/whiteboard animator (consultant) will be expected to document the process over the 2 days of each workshop, in conjunction with the lead facilitator, and to provide high quality physical and digital images within one week of each event. It is also preferable if the graphic recorder were able to develop a whiteboard video from their drawings, but if not, it is expected that they would work in conjunction with a whiteboard video designer to develop a video of the process and outcome.
The consultant would be expected to be there for the duration of the workshops and preferably also the day before each workshop for a briefing. There will also be a series of calls with the project team in the lead up to the event and potentially a face-to-face meeting depending on travel costs.
