Friday 22 June 2018 (All day) to Sunday 24 June 2018 (All day)

Name of Event: D-Construction/Never Set Eyes On Land 

Volunteer Role: D-Construction

This high-energy, hip-hop dance piece is performed around and on a large, chain-link fence and explores the timely issues of identity, borders and the bonds that connect us with one another. The audience is at the centre of the action, watching up close from all sides of the fence.

Never Set Eyes on The Land

Never Set Eyes on the Land focuses on the largest mass migration in the history of the world and its impact on the heritage of people and communities in the UK. The installation will bring to life a hidden community of Partition survivors who made this part of London their home over 50 years ago. Featuring 70 items and interpretations, this immersive experience will include poetry, letters, visual art, film, spoken word responses, evocative smells, sounds and music. The installation will be presented inside a newly adapted and designed shipping container with eye-catching external décor.

We need a team of friendly, enthusiastic and proactive festival volunteers to help ensure that the front of house runs smoothly at this event.

This may involve interacting with audience members as they arrive, fundraising, gaining audience evaluation, ensuring that our access provision is facilitated correctly and handing out brochures for future festival events.

Volunteers will receive training at our Volunteer Induction in Greenwich on 11 June, and expenses of £5 or £10 per shift will be provided.
