We have three key volunteer roles that we're looking to fill as part of the 2019 festival:
Venue Assistants (Front of House) will be helping out our festival team with the day-to-day running of the festival, and with specific events.
You'll help us:
- Greet audiences (including providing them with information about the festival, what's on, and encouraging them to complete our audience survey)
- Ensure venues are ready for shows (clearing and resetting performance spaces)
- Conduct front of house duties, helping audiences into venues
- And assist festival staff with other tasks, which might include helping artists prepare for their performances, cleaning, or other duties
Production Assistants (Tech) will be helping our Production Manager to prepare performance spaces, and operating tech during performances. The role is great for new and experienced tech people, and is a fantastic opportunity to develop or build on technical production skills! You never know when knowing how to run lights and sound for a show will come in handy.
Bar Assistants (Bar) will be helping our festival team operate the bar in our hub space at the Watt Space Gallery, or at our pop-up venue The Grey Area.
You’ll help us prepare and serve food (including pre-prepared snacks, and freshly made toasted sandwiches) and drinks (alcoholic and non) for customers.
Having a valid RSA certificate is not mandatory, but we’d very much love it if you have one!
