Global Experience – Set Designer

As part of Global Experience’s set design team, you will have the opportunity to use your skills and creativity to inspire others to address the challenges affecting our planet. Members of the set design team work to determine the look, feel and sensory elements of our theatrical sets, as well as the layout and design to support the stories. You will produce concept art and models and decide on the materials, costuming, graphic design, etc, for each simulation.

About OM’s Global Experience Team:
OM’s Global Experience team creates worlds in which participants experience firsthand the needs of those who are suffering. Instead of passively observing a situation, we enable them to take part, safely, in the challenges faced by those in need, and to discover what they can do to make a difference. Global Experience is similar to traditional theatre, except our actors interact directly with guests rather than performing in front of them.

Please note: Some topics portrayed in Global Experience simulations may be difficult, uncomfortable and intense, including issues of human trafficking, poverty, injustice, etc.

Expectations for all Global Experience team members:
• Respectfully cooperate and collaborate as part of a team.
• Be reliable and do what you say you will do.
• Have a servant’s heart yet be aware of and able to preserve your boundaries.
• Be open to receiving and able to give constructive feedback to one another.
• Choose to be gracious even when under stress.
• Handle conflict directly, openly and with kindness.
• Be willing to think ‘outside the box’ and try new things.
• Have a good sense of humour.

Requirements for Set Designers:
Skills and abilities:
