Your Internship at OtherWise
OtherWise is open to receiving interns from the Wageningen University or other universities. We rarely offer ready-made internships to students, but if you have an idea about an internship that fits the philosophy of OtherWise, contact us so we can talk about it. There is a lot of room at OtherWise to take on your own internship project.
Below you can read the review of Laci Bartha, MSc student Organic Agriculture, who made a documentary of his thesis research. The documentary is about the decision-making process regarding the future development of the ecovillage 'The Vlierhof' and their journey towards food self-sufficiency. The documentary was screened as an OtherWise event. The documentary can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vkb3v9BOY4M&t=1s
"I did my internship about Visual Research Methods at OtherWise in the academic year 2018-2019. The focus of the project was to explore the social dynamics within an intentional community and follow an internal decision-making process using video recordings as the main data collection method. I interviewed several community members and was allowed to observe some of their meetings too. From the recorded material I created a short documentary which presents the interaction between me - the researcher and the community and the findings of the research. learned a lot about visual research methods and I gained professional skills in script writing, interviewing, filming, editing, presenting and organizing events.I would encourage anyone who is interested in creating an internship from their own idea(s) to turn to OtherWise."
