READ THIS SECTION TO BEST PLACE YOURSELF. Feel free to apply to as many categories as you see fit.

Either way, they are worth meals, a day pass, a parking pass, or a cash stipend $20-50.

Day pass
2 meal tickets

Beaver Pass (all meals ticket), parking, $0 - $50 cash stipends
INFO: Installations are generally built during Sh'build! (Aug 28th - Sept 3rd 2020) Sh'build is an opportunity to immerse in creative collaboration alongside other artists while camping, eating delicious organic meals, jumping in the water for swim breaks, and steaming by night in the sauna. More info about sh'build on the Volunteer application. If you need more time than this to build your work please let us know and we will see what we can do to accommodate. Unless prior arrangements are made, all art installations must be dismantled and taken off site within three days time.

What category are you applying to? *
You can apply for as many categories as you would like. After you apply for one, you will be given the option to apply for another category. We will work as a team to make sure you are not overbooked at Sh'Bang!
