Thank you for your interest in being a crew member at Space to Emerge. Here is all the information you will need about our crew working tickets.
Contribution: The way we run our crew working tickets is that each crew member receives a weekend ticket in return for 6 hours work on Friday and 3 hours work on the remaining three days. Your Working Ticket covers you for all weekend activities, from Friday to Monday, and includes all workshops and evening entertainment. The ticket does not cover you for your camping fee, so if you would like to camp over, there will be a subsidised charge of £5 per night, this year payable on arrival (cash please). For crew members, we will throw in a night’s camping free of charge on the Thursday evening, so you can arrive on Thursday evening if you would like to settle in before we begin first thing on Friday morning.
Tasks involved: We begin the day on Friday with a tour of the site at 9am. At 10am we have our team meeting to kick things off. You will receive a full briefing from event manager Tina Burchill, who will also be your point of contact throughout the weekend. You will sign up for your working slots and decide on what activities you would like to get involved in around the behind-the-scenes running of our weekend. Tasks include setting up and stripping down the site which includes tent erection, placing signage around the woods and setting up the main Information Desk. Through the weekend tasks are predominately around manning the Information Desk, which includes checking people in when they arrive and explaining where they need to go, organising the parking, taking bookings for the healing tents and answering any general questions.
Commitment: Your commitment to being a part of our team is important. We need our crew team to be of a particular size in order to make sure that all the tasks can be completed with ease. Where crew members drop out within the weeks running up to the weekend, it puts a lot of additional pressure on the remaining team as we can’t necessarily find replacements in time with such short notice.
So, if you would like to be a part of our crew team, then please send Tina an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, including a few lines about yourself and any relevant experience and/or skills you have. We ask only that if it turns out that you cannot attend, you give us plenty of notice so that we can make alternative arrangements to fill your space.
Dates and times for your diary: we begin at 9am on Friday with a site tour and team briefing, before setting up the site. There will be time in the afternoon for you to pitch your tent, or you could arrive early on Friday to do it before the briefing. We usually finish by 6pm on Monday. Please note that this year’s Space to Emerge is not over the bank holiday.
