Volunteer registrations for Fringe 2015 are now open!
Adelaide Fringe simply couldn’t operate without the generous support of its wonderful team of volunteers who work alongside our team to deliver such programs as Opening Night Parade, Fringe in the Mall, Street Theatre Festival and other Adelaide Fringe produced projects and activities.
The level of experience you are looking for entirely depends on the level of commitment you can offer to the Fringe team. There are two options available for volunteers. Core Volunteer Team members will be expected to volunteer anywhere from 50 to 100 hours for the Fringe over the months leading up to and including the four-week festival. Parade Volunteers help Adelaide Fringe staff in the lead up to and during the Adelaide Fringe Parade on the 13th of February, 2014
Approximately 50 Core Volunteer Team members will make up a huge component of the Fringe team and contribute to almost every department in the fantastic organisation that creates the Adelaide Fringe each year.
All Core Volunteers are expected to join our Parade Volunteers on Friday Feb 13th to volunteer at our Opening Night Fringe Parade.
Other Core Volunteer roles and responsibilities will vary and may include:
• Key Opening Night Fringe Parade Marshals
