This is a completely self-organising, do-it-ourselves event, so it needs lots of volunteers to make it a success.

Everyone is welcome to get involved with organising the event and making it run smoothly on the day.  There are plenty of things that need to happen, and they can all be quite fun with a few people working together.

There will be a schedule of volunteer tasks posted on site next to the program.  Please choose a task that you would like to do, and write your name next to it.

If you see anything else that needs doing, or anyone who needs help, jump right in!

Helpers are needed from 9am to prepare the site.

Volunteer facilitators for each activity session can help the session run smoothly.

The facilitator’s role is to

  • help the presenter prepare their materials
  • announce the start of the session
  • ensure that it starts on time
  • introduce the presenter
  • keep the session on track
  • facilitate questions/discussion from participants
  • thank the presenter at the end
  • help pack up
