MAKE||SOUND Festival: searching for volunteers

I have approached a few people already, but we're still looking for volunteers to help with the Make||Sound Festival next week. For information about this, please check out its website:

The festival is designed to be reasonably high impact in terms of public engagement, so we’re holding it in a vacant unit in Highcross Shopping Centre, then moving to the Curve theatre. It will involve an exhibition, workshops (this includes workshops for electronic sound-making devices, and a full day of Ableton Live activities), and a symposium. 

Searching for volunteers:  
We’re looking for some volunteers who might be able to help us with the event. This would involve…:
- stewarding the exhibition space and workshops
- soliciting feedback from visitors
- (possibly) conducting informal interviews with visitors.

We can’t offer money, I’m afraid, but we can offer full expenses for the day amounting to about £25 per person,  which would cover transport, parking and food.  

There would be training for interviewing and gathering data, which is being kindly given by Dr Sophy Smith (leader of the MA at the IOCT). So there’s an employability and research development aspect to this. Sophy would be delivering this on Weds 3 June, 10-12. NOTE THE SHORT NOTICE ON THIS!

You’d be able to attend the workshop/drop-in sessions during the week, the symposium (Friday) and a full day of Ableton activities on Saturday (this promises to be a great day!). (Both the latter are being held in Curve.)

The activities will be running c. 12-6pm every day from 6-13 June.
We’re looking for about four people per day.
As many or as few days as you can manage (if any) would be great, and very much appreciated.

If you'd be interested, please contact me as soon as possible:
