One of the most important things at ConFest is caring for each other, and the Fire Response Team is pivotal in supporting this! We are looking for both skilled and unskilled volunteers, as we will provide a little training. Our festival site is one of intense fire risk and with all your support (because EVERY ConFester is a fire warden) we will continue to all have a safe festival experience.
After newly arrived ConFesters have waiting in line and scanned their tickets, we are everyone’s first glimpse of the actual festival!
We’re also stationed at gates to different Car Free areas, explaining where people can go with and without cars. Lots of newbies with lots of questions!
This team will be mainly in action in the first 3 days of the festival.
We are the fairies of the information tent – managing the timetables, the billboards, the chalk, the 2 hour volunteers and the announcements of information! We help people navigate the forever changing and evolving labyrinth of ConFest, whilst reminding them that it’s fun to get lost! We deliver all sorts of info, including fire safety and encouraging people to get hydrated and protected from the sun. Most importantly, we will be recruiting ConFesters for their 2hr volunteer shifts at Front Gate, First Aid, Welcome Gate etc. This role can include coming a couple of days early to help set up the space as well as man the info tent during the festival.
Our mission is to provide a family friendly environment that embraces diversity and personal choice, which is safe and appropriate for children of all ages.
We are the roaming approachable friendly faces of the ConFest community. Our main aim is to ensure that everyone has a safe and wonderful time! We love giving directions, having friendly check ins, de-escaltating any concerns and keeping an eye out for issues before they become major problems.
