Call for Volunteers for Festival Phénomena 2014

Friday, September 12, 2014

Now that the program is complete, we are moving onto organizational logistics with which we need your help! Are you interested in being part of a festival team? Do you feel like joining the Filles Électriques family for a few days? It’s an exhilarating and memorable experience each year.

The Festival will take place from October 17 to 24 and we need more people before and during (and after … well a volunteer massage therapist would be welcome!)

Before the Festival

  • Internship with lighting and set designer Lucie Bazzo for the design and conception of the set design for the festival (lights, costumes and accessories for DADA Cabaret, decorative room arrangements, transportation equipment, lighting assembly).
  • Distribution of posters and programs primarily in the Mile End (in exchange for event tickets).

We are also seeking the rare gem who will intern at our office to join the Filles Électriques team. Tasks will be varied, some more permanent, such as aiding in ticketing and hospitality to artists, and helping to put out any fires… We assure you that the work atmosphere here is quite electric and stimulating. Eternal gratitude is guaranteed. Integration into the Filles Électriques family for life. Our office is part of pi2 project on rue de Gaspé and there is an elevator! The internship could span over the course of 3 weeks from October 6 to 25 to 20 hours a week including a regular attendance of the festival.

During the Festival

  • To welcome the festival goers at La Sala Rossa, at the Cabaret du Mile End, at the Casa Del Popolo (which in turn will grant you free admission to the shows). Availability required: about 1 hour before the show. We need two people at the door to collect tickets and two dynamic individuals to fill out our brief house survey. We also need help to support artists who perform at the Champ des possibles.
  • Installation of the box office from 17h00 to 18h00 and to aid us in the démontage as well.

We are looking to cultivate a real team spirit and a sense of family which will arise out of the time you are able to give us, and through which more responsibilities will arise.

There will be a meeting Tuesday, September 30 at 18h at the Filles Électriques workshop located at 5445 de Gaspé, Local 421 on the 4th floor.

For more information and to provide us with your availabilities, contact Cecile Thomas or 514-495-1515.
