Get Involved


New Forms Festival ‘09
Call for Volunteers

Hey peeps!

We need volunteers for this year’s New Forms Festival, a convergence of media art, electronic music and digital culture featuring Dandy Jack (Berlin, Santiago), Kyle Hall (Detroit), Vancouver’s own Jay Tripwire and many more.

Lots of well-connected personalities in the local and international arts scene will be attending The Festival and volunteering will be a great way to network.

All volunteers will receive a festival pass.

Check out the available positions below. If you find yourself available for more than one of the positions, please let us know! If you can’t make it but you know of someone who would be right for one of the jobs, spread the word!
