re:publica just wouldn't be the same without its many volunteers. Every year, they make sure our event runs smoothly and retains its unique atmosphere. As for the upcoming #rp18 on Mai 2018, we’re currently looking for enthusiastic supporters to help out from 30th April to 7th May (for an eight-hour day including breaks).
We’re looking for helpers in the following areas: assembly and dismantling, accreditation, admission, cloakroom management, info point, press support, stage management, technology and network. We’ll provide more detailed information on requirements and tasks for individual areas in the later registration process.
An exclusive glimpse behind the scenes
Of course, our Helping Hands won’t be left empty handed! In addition to an exclusive glimpse behind the scenes of the organization, we’ll supply food on the day of support, a Helping Hands t-shirt and of course a ticket for re:publica valid on all three days.
Register on our helper page from 19thFebruary 2018. Shifts will be up for grabs from 15th March 2018, 3pm. As usual it’s first come, first serve! Please note: We have reset our Helping Hands database from last year as part of our website relaunch. In case of doubt, for those of you who have participated as a helper in the past few years: Register again!
Our obligatory Helping Hands briefing will take place on April 30th 2018 (anticipated date!) at 6pm at the re:publica site. Here you’ll receive your t-shirt and your #rp18 ribbon. Additionally, the respective contact persons for the individual areas will introduce themselves, and you’ll have the exclusive opportunity to meet our four re: publica-founders. The Helping Hands Briefing is not compulsory, but we recommend all helpers to take part, especially those who will be volunteering for the first time.
No worries! Just send an email to: help (at) re-publica.com, join our Helping Hands Facebook group or check our FAQs!
