Talk Town invites associations, media, political parties, activists, professional organizations, companies and citizens to take part in the festivals debates and workshops. Anyone who has an interest in the theme is more than welcome.
We hope for a wide range of input to make the debate as multifaceted as possible.
Organizers of an event pay a fee of 1500 DKK for hosting their event. The fee covers: specific location at the festival (2 hours), technical conduction, stage-management, technical equipment.
Talk Town holds ongoing information meetings. Future dates will be published here and on Facebook. At the Info Meetings you can hear more about how you can become a participant at Talk Town, find partners for your event, get sparring on your ideas and answers to your questions.
As a volunteer at the Talk Town festival you will get the exclusive opportunity to be a part of a team consisting of organizers and other volunteers, that have dedicated their time and energy to get Talk Town Århus up and running. We can’t do it without you – so come join us!
Do you want to join the Talk Town Århus-group who work with planning and developing the festival? Then send us an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would rather volunteer during Talk Town and in the weeks leading up to the festival, then keep an eye on this page and on Facebook where we announce dates for info meetings.
OPPORTUNITIES FOR VOLUNTEERING
Can you operate a PA-system, projectors and other tech equipment?
As a tech volunteer at Talk Town you will be in charge of a wide variety of tech systems, making sure everything is in working accordingly and being ready to step in if (and when!) something stops working.
Experience with sound tech is necessary, since you will be responsible for the equipment on the various stages.
Are you serviceminded and interested in activism? Would you like to ensure that the festival guests, speakers and organisers have a fun and memorable experience? Then the Front Desk Crew is for you! The front desk crew cover a variety of tasks such as working behind the bar in the feminist bodega or ensuring our guests have the information they require by manning the information and merchandise stand.
Talk Town needs help distributing flyers and programmes to cafés, libraries, venues etc. in the weeks prior to the festival. So if you enjoy cycling around the streets of Århus, and meeting new people, this might just be the job for you!
As a runner at Talk Town your job is to be in the right place at the right time, helping out with all sorts of tasks such as setting up chairs, making more coffee, cleaning up between events, helping out at the feminist marketplace or working with the stage managers on bigger tasks. The runners are important cogs in the festival wheel, and absolutely essential to ensure the festival runs according to plan.
So if you thrive in a high-paced job with many different tasks, are good at staying organized and friendly at the same time, you may just be the runner, we’re looking for.
Each day will be different – so a can-do attitude is a must!
A driver’s license isn’t mandatory, but definitely a plus.
As a photographer at 2019 Talk Town you will be in charge of documenting the various events and capturing the ambience of the festival at the same time. The photos are a vital part of Talk Town’s social media content, and maybe you will also contribute in keeping our social media platforms updated during the festival, if that has your interest.
As Stage Manager you will be responsible for one or more of Talk Town’s stages and 3-5 events a day depending on the size of the stage.
You will be a part of a team of stage managers and work closely with the Talk Town organisers.
Your job will consist of welcoming speakers, sending them on stage and ensuring that the events run on time – or making the necessary decisions when unforeseen situations occur. You will also be in charge of technical equipment such as microphones, projectors, PA etc., and coordinating technicians as needed.
The backstage crew is responsible for catering for volunteers, speakers and artists. This can include arranging hot or cold meals and ensuring a steady supply of coffee throughout the day. You’re in charge of keeping the backstage area clean and tidy, and in charge of making sure refreshments and snacks are distributed to the right places at the right time around the festival site.
Do you have a creative streak and a sense for architecture and design?
We want Folkestedet to look even better than usual during the festival. We therefore need creative volunteers to get the site ready with decorations, information booths and everything in between.
The preparation period is also fun and hands-on and gives you the chance to help turn Talk Town 2019 into a spectacular visual experience to underpin the activities of the festival.
After the festival, you will help dismantle the festival’s temporary decorations, and restore Folkestedet to its former self.
