Strathearn Art Walk is just aroudn the corner on September 7th and we’re looking for volunteers to fill our remaining spots! Volunteer orientation will be held the evening before Art Walk, on the site, and free pizza will be provided! We’ve got other perks for volunteers day-of, including a free beverage and meal, and a thank you gift from us!
We’re looking for the following roles specifically:
Traffic Team (8am-noon, noon-4pm, 4-8pm)
As part of the Traffic team, you'll be responsible for controlling roadway traffic at access points to the site. You'll allow access to permitted vehicles only, maintaining emergency road access and providing safe access for pedestrians and cyclists. You will inform individuals why parking restrictions are in place and direct them to where reserved event parking is available. You'll be supported by our Site Managers. Volunteers should be assertive, able to move a road barricade, and have good customer service skills.
Artist Check-in and Set-up Assistants (8am-noon)
Working in teams of two, Artist Check-In & Setup Assistants will use our maps and checklists to help artists find their spots and assist in them getting ready for the event. Each team will be assigned a group of spots, and you'll help artists in your group find and prepare their spot for Art Walk customers. You'll work directly with the Artist Check-In Manager.
Environmental Services (noon-4pm, 4-8pm)
Our Environmental Services team make sure that garbage cans and recycling bins aren't overflowing, and other areas of the site have what they need! Working individually or in teams, you'll transport ice, water, equipment and various supplies around the site. You will communicate with site managers via radio and assist with site management, and in the event of an emergency you may be asked to help secure the site using our emergency preparedness plan.
Art Walk Takedown Crew (6:30-8:30pm)
The Art Walk Takedown Crew volunteers will first assist artists in taking down their displays and tents when they pack up at the end of the day. After assisting artists, the takedown crew will take down and pack up the entire Art Walk venue, including tables and chairs, the beer gardens, and other site infrastructure. Volunteers must be able to lift approximately 20 kg.
