JOIN OUR CREW: VOLUNTEER TEAM

RAVNEDANS 2017

 

Do you want to join our volunteer team this summer?

Dates: from 04.07 to 16.07

 

Ravnedans festival for contemporary dance is organized for the 7th year in a row this up coming summer in the numer one summer city of Norway: Kristiansand. The 6-day long festival includes both workshops, performance labs, morning classes and daily performances both outdoors and indoors as well as our famous festival bar Ravnbar.  Every year we engage around 30 professional artists as well as a volunteer team of about 20 people.

 

We need volunteers in the planning phase, during the festival, and a few days after it ends. We're looking primarily for volunteers who can work the whole, or larger part of the period, but please also contact us if you have the opportunity to join for shorter parts of the festival only.

 

As a volunteer at Ravnedans you will work with professional dancers, technicians, sound and lighting designers and educators from all over the world. You normally work in groups with other volunteers, and in close collaboration with the festival's own producers. The most important thing for us is that you are dedicated and that you love festivals as much as we do

We have many and quite different tasks that need to be filled!

 

We need everything from bar staff and someone who can hang up posters to artist hosts. This year we are also looking for a technical crew who will work together with our producer Martin Myrvold. We are also searching for people who are in educatipn towards administration of stage art or bigger events, and who can imagine taking on greater responsibilities.
