Help youngsters in the local society:
The work we do is important for the community and forms something cultural in our area for young people. Before Gnist Festival there was no local place for youngsters to express themselves with the music or art talent that they possess. We give them a professional environment where they can show what they got! And of course, socialize with other youngsters.
There will be quite a lot of variety in the work tasks. In the first few days, we will need to transform the open area (in which the festival is held) into a festival with a food court, two stages, and a lot of decoration. All the work will take place outside, and it can be a bit cold with a chance of rain, so dress accordingly. The work is not too intense, and we like to have a good time prepping for the festival days. Some work will start the day you arrive, but you will of course have time to settle in.
The work itself will the first few days be a combination of work, breaks, and leisure time, in that sense that we have some prepping that needs to be done before a deadline. The work consists, for example, of making signs, painting the signs, setting up toilet/bath trolleys, and setting up the two stages (There will be professional people to guide and do most of the work with the stages, we just need to help them a bit) and a lot of other things that will appear on the days.
On the actual festival days, the volunteers will get a schedule with 2 x 4-hour shifts, which may include: Standing behind a bar, cleaning toilets or the festival area, guarding the entrance, or another job that we need at that specific time.
No experience is needed, just passion! There are no language requirements, but there must be a way to communicate with the organizers. The organizers speak Danish and English. No need for specific documents.
On the festival days, there will be professional safety and Samaritans. There will be some organizers (also young volunteers) who will know the big picture and make sure that everything goes as planned. There will also be other local volunteers, who will work beside you with the same work, together with you.
