Deadline

We are a local amateur performance/  music festival.

Due to COVID pandemic we wish to move aspects of our event online.We are looking for a volunteer with an interest in music and performing arts to assist us.

What will you be doing?

We need a patient individual who can guide us through the best way to deliver our festival online, and help make our initial ideas a reality. We need help identifying the tools and practices that are right for our event. You will need to work with a group with very limited experience with online technology. Initially we would ideally need advice and support over the summer period to get us set up. We would then need our volunteer( s) to be on hand between January and March for troubleshooting and problem solving.

What are we looking for?

Our ideal volunteer will have:

  • experience with planning and delivering live events
  • understands good practice frameworks for safeguarding, GDPR, performance licences
  • has an interesting in music and performing arts
  • understands the technological challenges of hosting a music event online.
  • will provide assistance with the tools and practices needed for initial set up, and will be available for ongoing problem solving for approximately 8 months in total.
  • optional - can help us improve our social media presence

 

What difference will you make?

We believe our event has many positive benefits for our community - offering social opportunities across the community and boosting interest in the performing arts. However the online world is new to us and we lack knowledge and expertise, you can make a real difference in helping us move forward in these difficult times.

What's in it for the volunteer?

We are a small group of volunteers who are passionate about our event. We hope that you will want to join our group and experience the satisfaction of helping others achieve their potential and absorb all the positive mental health benefits to be gained from an involvement in Performing Arts.
