On-site volunteers are indispensable to the success of INSITU Site-Specific Dance Festival.
The Festival comes to life through the support and cooperation of our small organizing team, community and parks partners, advisory board and corps of more than 100 on-site volunteers.
Energetic, friendly volunteers are needed to help with a variety of important tasks, represent the Festival and its mission to the community, and help spread the vibrancy of the arts and raise the level of cultural awareness in Queens.
All volunteers will receive:
- INSITU 2018 T-SHIRT and TOTE BAG designed by Festival designer Cstudio
- Special BROWN BAG LUNCH prepared by COFFEED
Here is a list of volunteer opportunities:
The Information Volunteers are located at the Information Tents in each park. They are responsible for interfacing with curious passersby and festival patrons about the performance schedule, artists, INSITU mission, getting around LIC and from park to park, and of course location of the closest public restroom. We need enthusiastic, outgoing people on this team.
Audience Leaders are the movers of the Festival, guiding people from one performance to the next through each sequence. These lucky volunteers experience each performance in their assigned park. The ability to project your voice to crowds is a plus!
Production Support Team
The production team supports our production director in managing the pickup, installation, removal and return of all festival equipment including small speakers, generators, tents, tables and signs. If you’re interested in gaining experience in the industry, this is a crucial position within the festival.
Park Cleanup Team
The Cleanup Team is responsible for removing light trash, plant material, and sand from all performance locations. Volunteers on this team are given a wonderful opportunity to really serve the community by helping to beautify our parks and support the artists in the performance of their works.
Artist Green Space Team
The Green Space Team is responsible for picking up all in-kind donations, from bread, peanut butter and jam to bottled water and bananas, from local businesses, delivering to the artists’ holding spaces, and setting up and managing those spaces each day of the festival.
