Volunteer for Fringe Fest 2024

Volunteer for Fringe Fest 2024

Interested in joining an amazing community of artists and theatre enthusiasts, all while getting sweet perks and free show tickets? The Fringe Festival team is now looking for volunteers!

The Fringe Festival itself will kick off on August 21st and wrap up on September 1st. At the beginning of August, you will receive a link from me which will allow you to sign up for shifts.

For volunteering, you’ll receive:

- A free 3-Show Volunteer Pass for signing up to volunteer
- Invitations to Artists’ Volunteer Appreciation shows
- Free pizza in the volunteer hub
- An additional 3-Show Volunteer Pass once you've completed 4 shifts and are signed up to complete at least 3 more during the Festival.

We will also be hosting a volunteer thank you party on the last day of the festival, with food, music, and prizes!

The Fringe Festival couldn’t exist without you and your hard work. This festival is supporting performers and artists for its 38th year, thanks to people like you. Thank you for keeping local creativity alive and well, and I’m so excited to work with you.

This is going to be a lot of fun.

Call for Submissions - Little Fernwood Gallery

Operating within the traditional territories of the lək̓ʷəŋən-speaking peoples, the Fernwood Community Association’s Little Fernwood Gallery Committee seeks proposals for month-long exhibitions to be held at 1923 Fernwood Road from January to December 2025.

This Call is open to all local artists/groups/collectives, with the selection process prioritizing artists within the Fernwood community who experience systemic barriers to inclusion in the visual arts, and who employ diverse approaches to their art. We are seeking a wide range of art-making, and an array of material explorations that reflect our unique community. Emerging artists are encouraged to apply. Please note that to accommodate other users of the space, all artwork must be displayed on the perimeter of the gallery. Plinths are available on request.

The Little Fernwood Gallery follows accepted protocols on copyright infringement and non-appropriation of Indigenous cultures — work that infringes on these guidelines will not be accepted. The Little Fernwood Gallery is a publicly supported gallery and we reserve the right to show work suitable to our neighbourhood.
