re:publica just wouldn't be the same without its numerous volunteers. Every year, they make sure that our event runs smoothly and retains its unique atmosphere. As for the upcoming re:publica in Dublin on October 20, 2016, we are also looking for enthusiastic supporters to help out at one of our four event venues, for half the day on the evening of October 19, or on October 20 during the day (one 4-hour shift). You will receive a free ticket for the conference in return. As re:publica is taking place in Dublin this time, we are mainly looking for volunteers who are already there or are travelling in at their own expense. Another important point: We are in Ireland, so fluency in English is mandatory. Both requirements apply to you? Then join us for re:publica in Dublin as a volunteer in one of several areas of responsibility.
If you want to help, you first have to register on this page, starting now (unless you have registered for one of our previous events before). From September 5 onwards, you can then select a specific shift within the volunteer system. Our call will be active until September 30, 2016.
The following tasks are available:
- The # rpDUB accreditation (for participants, speakers, partners and press) is where you will issue tickets, hand out wristbands and programme leaflets, and help journalists arrive at appointments. For working at this booth as well as the info counter, you need to be communicative – this is the central point of the entire re:publica, so you can expect participants to pepper you with all kinds of questions, such as: Where is the next session taking place? Where are the restrooms? And so on.
- As an admissions volunteer, you will keep track of entries and won't be shy to address guests directly.
- If you want to take over a shift in the cloakroom, you need to be patient and work well under pressure.
- As a stage manager, you keep an eye on the situation on stage and make sure that the speakers are well looked after. Both technical knowledge and empathy are required here.
