Become a Festival Helper
If you are currently short of cash or you just enjoy helping out, we absolutely want you to come. Helper tickets are available for less than half price. We currently need helpers to contribute their energy, skills and creativity to making the festival run smoothly and with flair.
If you elect to be a festival helper, you will help with:
1.) assisting presenters during workshops (you generally get to choose who you wish to assist)
2.) assisting the caterer with serving food
3.) assisting at the front desk, making sure that everyone has an appropriate arm band and making sure only festival attendees enter
4.) Cleaning-up both during the day and before closing each night.
As an festival helper, you work at most only half the time of the festival. For the other half you are a regular participant.
If this sounds like you, and you are a proactive, friendly and reliable and are a team-player, please fill out this application form stating your wish to be an at festival helper with some information about yourself and what your skills are.
PLEASE NOTE: Helper tickets are not free. If you are accepted as a helper, the cost is $560 for the 8 days or the cost is $330 if you stay only for the first 3 days. This price includes food for the time that you are there. You can either camp or have shared accomodation in one of our beds, if you bring bedding with you. If you are staying for 3 days, you are advised to bring a tent or sleeping bag with you as accommodation at the retreat is limited. The reason why we offer helper tickets is primarily to make the festival more affordable for those on low incomes. If you are not happy with this arrangement, please do not fill out the form.
