Roles

Before the festival

POSTCARD DISTRIBUTION

2 volunteers

Description and Details:

You’ll be delivering promotional postcards to businesses and organizations around the city of Toronto. A list of locations will be provided, and we’re hoping you’ll be able to add to this list, drawing from your knowledge of the local scene. At the end of the festival, you’ll be responsible for providing a list of places where you delivered postcards. You’ll get started right away, distribute another round of postcards early in May that will highlight the May 17th event, and continue doing occasional distribution rounds into early June.

Each of these volunteers will receive 2 tickets to Universe in a Glass, a program of animated shorts at the Gardiner Museum on May 17th, as well as complimentary registration for any one of the single-day workshops at Evergreen Brick Works in June.

Time commitments:

We estimate this will take about 2-3 hours per week for 5 weeks = 10-15 hours total

Qualifications:
Upbeat and friendly
Good communication skills
Understanding of the festival’s mandate and content
Knowledge of the city and how to get around it; having a bicycle is an asset

You’ll be able to answer participants’ questions about the event and venue, and help the presenters as needed. You’ll also post to social media (Instagram, Twitter) about the workshop as it’s happening. You’ll be able to participate in the workshops to some extent (i.e., when you’re not assisting).

For the May workshops, this role will include helping with setup and takedown, which may involve some heavy lifting. For the June Indigenous Plants/Indigenous Histories guided hikes, assistants will need to be able to walk a fairly easy nature trail, and to be comfortable using smartphone apps.

Time commitment:
One orientation session and a minimum of one workshop (minimum ~6 hours)

This volunteer will come to some of the June workshops to shoot video. Subtle Technologies will provide an in-house editor to work with raw footage.

This is a good opportunity for a video production student looking to build a portfolio.

Each of these volunteers will receive 2 tickets to Universe in a Glass, a program of animated shorts at the Gardiner Museum on May 17th, as well as complimentary registration for any one of the single-day workshops at Evergreen Brick Works in June. Any transit or travel expenses will also be reimbursed.
