Origins Gathering 2019 ↞ Work Trade Application ↠
Thank you for your interest in offering to be part of our 'work' trade team at Origins Gathering 2019!

The submission deadline for applications is April 15th. You will receive notification of your acceptance by April 30th.


It truly takes a village to make this event happen and we couldn't do it without your help. The areas in which we are seeking assistance are marketing + promotions, pre-gathering set up, post-gathering break down, maintenance, decoration, kitchen crew, spa attendants and mama's village. Due to the limited amount of work trade positions available in each area, if the area that you have applied for has already been filled, we will contact you in offer of another area. Please consider selecting more than one option.


Each area requires it's own set of skills and passion. Please read the descriptions of each area below to determine which one(s) your abilities are best suited for. It is important to us that you have a comfortable, safe and positive experience.

All work trade positions require 20 hours of your time before, during or after the gathering depending on which crew you will be a part of. There will be a mandatory orientation meeting at 12pm on July 17th so please arrive no later than 11am that day.
