Volunteer Call Out

Andro and Eve is about bringing our community together, and one of the ways we do that is by working with a fab team of volunteers who give their time to help make our events happen. 

As we prepare for some activities in the coming year we’re looking to expand our volunteer team who support our events and workshops in a variety of ways. We’d love to hear from you if you’ve got some time and energy to help out.

Our volunteers assist with the following tasks at our events and workshops:-

– Interacting with our community, providing a warm welcome, giving directions, responding to access requests and assisting with crowd control.
– Decorating venues pre event; think hanging bunting, fairy lights, all the sparkle!
– Handling cash / using card machine for sales of raffle tickets / merch and cake.
– Keeping venues clean and trip hazard free! Clearing up after the event and packing away. 
– Helping safeguard our community, working with our Safer Spaces and Safeguarding policies. 
– Helping collect data from audience members and participants to support Andro and Eve’s evaluation processes.  

And for online events:-

– Admitting people onto zoom calls
– Monitoring the chat and providing support to participants
– Helping keep the online space safe, working with our Safer Spaces and Safeguarding policies. 

We’re also keen to hear from people who would be up for distributing our posters and flyers, this is an important part of helping us reach new people.

If you are interested in supporting a small queer arts organisation and meeting new people then becoming part of Andro and Eve’s volunteer crew might be for you.

Typically, we ask volunteers wanting to help with events to work with us on evenings and weekends, and for shifts of 3 – 6 hours. In return for your support, we provide:-

– Free food at in person events
– Local travel expenses covered
– Free training and support in advance of events
– Team socials 

As one previous volunteer said – 

‘Getting involved with Andro and Eve has been a great decision. There’s something really powerful about coming together and putting on these fabulous events to celebrate aspects of our queer culture. The team are so friendly, and it’s been a pleasure to meet so many new friends from those involved’.

If the above sounds good to you, you’re up for interacting with audiences, artists and participants, and you have some availability, then send us a message to hello@androandeve.com and tell us;

  1. Why you’d like to volunteer
  2. Where you are based
  3. If you’ve helped out at events before (any kind, and its okay if you haven’t)
  4. Any relevant skills related to the above duties that might be good for us to know about
  5. If you are available to help out at The Kingdom Come on 13 April (it’s okay if not, there’ll be other events!)
  6. Any specific support you might need to access this opportunity. 

We’ll then liaise with you about the best ways to get you involved.

Volunteers who would like to help out at The Kingdom Come on 13 April should have contacted us by 25 March so we can let you know about some team training in time! 

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to drop us a line. We look forward to hearing from you.
