seeking Story-Fest ’18 Volunteers!

Word Travels are on the look-out for a stellar Story-Fest ‘18 Volunteer Team

Join the team between Thursday 18 Oct to Monday 21 Oct in and around The Rocks, NSW to help create Story-Fest ‘18: a Performing Writers’ Festival which brings poets from around Australia and the world to Sydney.

The Story-Fest Volunteer Team will assist at workshops, talks and live performances with:

  • Event Coordinating - a great opportunity to gain hands on event experience, this will involve bumping in and out staging, seating, lighting and other equipment and production running (volunteer driving their own car with expenses reimbursed). Volunteers will need to be physically able and comfortable with light manual handling duties;

  • Theatre Production - setting up and operating sound, lighting and audio visual equipment. Volunteers should have some skills and experience in technical theatre production and/or stage management.

  • The Rumble Youth Program - volunteers with a WWCC to help deliver our free poetry workshop to High School students from all around Sydney.

  • Artist Liaising - help our performing poets enjoy a well organised, stress free festival! May include transporting artists (volunteer driving their own car with expenses reimbursed) being on hand to answer poets questions at rehearsal and tech runs and assisting to coordinate poets backstage.

  • Front of House - be the face of Story-Fest. Roles will include ushering, ticketing and selling merchandise.

  • Bar & Food Service - help us to serve the good stuff. Volunteers must hold a RSA and we’re also seeking some with their FSS.

All volunteers will hold a Festival Pass which will gain you free entry to all Story-Fest ‘18 Performances and Talks (subject to availability and excluding Workshops and Australian Poetry Slam events).
